Coronavirus can damage your lungs for 15 years. Moreover, after eliminating all the viruses, patients may still suffer from sequels. Those are some warnings from experts. 

Coronavirus May Cause Lung Damages For Up To 15 Years

According to the Leader Board of Hong Kong Hospital, they monitored a group of 12 Covid-19 patients. The result showed that two or three in this group had impaired lung function. The lung functions of those patients declined by 20% to 30% after recovery. Fortunately, this condition can be improved if the patients do lung capacity enhancement exercises regularly.

The US Biotechnology Information Center has carried out some experiments on it. They concluded that there was up to 17 percent of 99 coronavirus patients suffering from Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). If those patients have acute pneumonia, their lungs cannot provide important organs with enough oxygen. It has made 10 percent of patients in England treated in ICU and killed 30 to 40 percent of patients.

When Covid-19 enters the human lungs, it caused inflammation in the lung’s mucous membrane. Then, the mucous from nearby blood vessels enter the alveolar sacs in the lungs, making it harder to breathe. Hence, it takes coronavirus patients about 6 months to 15 years for complete lung recovery after get out of this deadly virus.

Coronavirus May Also Damage Other Organs

Covid-19 does not only cause damages to patients' lungs but it also impacts other organs, such as the digestive system, kidneys, livers, and hearts.

In specific, scientists from the UK claimed that coronavirus may cause heart inflammation, leading to heart failure. Luckily, the rate of this sequel is very low. Besides, it also causes diarrhea and stomachache. Moreover, livers and kidneys are also vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2. When someone gets infected with Covid-19, those organs may also be damaged.
