Doc­tors came to the con­clu­sion that the symp­toms that sig­nal infec­tion man­i­fest them­selves in dif­fer­ent peo­ple in dif­fer­ent ways and in dif­fer­ent sequences. As a result of observ­ing patients, experts named 5 atyp­i­cal signs of a coro­n­avirus infec­tion that has entered the body. It is impor­tant to be sure to pay atten­tion to them in a pan­dem­ic, as they can be a mark­er of coro­n­avirus infec­tion, while a per­son does not even sus­pect it.

1. Indigestion

Prob­lems with the gas­troin­testi­nal tract, loss of appetite, nau­sea, vom­it­ing, diar­rhea, abdom­i­nal dis­com­fort are pos­si­ble signs of COVID-19. Research results show that symp­toms of gas­troin­testi­nal dis­or­ders appear in one in five infect­ed with coro­n­avirus. Symp­toms such as loos­er stools and more fre­quent trips to the toi­let should be espe­cial­ly alert.

2. Eye infections

Amer­i­can sci­en­tists have con­clud­ed that three per­cent of peo­ple who get COVID-19 devel­op con­junc­tivi­tis in the first place. It is accom­pa­nied by increased lacrima­tion, red­ness of the eye pro­teins, and copi­ous dis­charge. Mois­ture par­ti­cles from inflamed eyes con­tain­ing the virus can be spread by blow­ing your nose and sneez­ing, as well as through your hands after touch­ing, and be a source of infec­tion.

3. Rash

Accord­ing to the obser­va­tions of Span­ish doc­tors, one of the ear­ly symp­toms of COVID-19 may be a rash on the legs, sim­i­lar to the one that appears with measles and small­pox. Most­ly red­ness appears in the area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe toes. Most often, such rash­es are found in chil­dren and ado­les­cents. And since in chil­dren the dis­ease can be almost asymp­to­matic, the appear­ance of a rash should by no means be ignored.

4. Brain fog

British sci­en­tists have found that one of the signs of infec­tion may be a state of “brain fog. Depend­ing on the infec­tious dose, var­i­ous dis­or­ders of brain activ­i­ty can occur. Cog­ni­tive prob­lems such as the loss of the abil­i­ty to recall facts, read and remem­ber what has been read, ade­quate­ly car­ry on a con­ver­sa­tion, or per­form tasks that require con­cen­tra­tion, may be observed for some time after the end of the ill­ness.

5. Fatigue and loss of energy

Weak­ness, fatigue, loss of strength are expe­ri­enced by more than 50% of patients with coro­n­avirus, regard­less of the infec­tious dose and sever­i­ty of the dis­ease. Some WHO experts tend to attribute fatigue to the main symp­tom of COVID-19, along with fever and cough. By the way, this symp­tom is con­sid­ered one of the longest post-COVID dis­or­ders — even after recov­ery, a per­son may feel tired and lack of ener­gy for up to two months.
