The most rare symptoms of coronavirus now are nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. This was stated in a conversation with URA.RU by the head of the laboratory of genomic engineering at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, virologist, candidate of medical sciences Pavel Volchkov.
“Sometimes with an upper respiratory tract infection there is an indirect infection of the gastrointestinal tract. This may be accompanied by an immune response of the gastrointestinal tract. Rarely, but coronavirus can be seen in the form of an intestinal flow with nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. This happens, but is extremely rare. Basically, the classic flu course,” said Pavel Volchkov.
Also, the coronavirus can open the gate for other infections, the virologist added. “Another covid can be accompanied by a long course and a bacterial infection can join it, which seriously aggravates the disease. For example, bacterial pneumonia. Unfortunately, it can be fatal,” he said.
Earlier, the allergist-immunologist Vladimir Bolibok, in an interview with URA.RU, called the longest consequences of the coronavirus. According to him, some of those who recovered from COVID-19 back in 2020 are still suffering from its consequences in the form of a decrease in mental performance.
