Update COVID-19 syndrome
Review what we have learned:
- A wide range of symptoms from almost nothing to highly severity. The 3 standards of common symptoms are still fever, dry cough, shortness of breath.
- Vulnerable population: Senior citizens, people with pre-existing conditions, the obese.
- General stat: More harmful to man than woman, less evidence on pregnant women. A rare inflammatory reaction with cardiac toward the young population, under 26s.
- A person with COVID-19 symptoms can be tested for negative, mild symptoms, at the early stage. It might be the first clue.
What we learn more: how COVID-19 damages our bodies.
- Blood clots an entire body which can kill 20-50% of patients.
- A failure of function for internal organs links the blood clots. Some of common observations are severe lung damage, weakened heart muscle and disruption of its rhythms, savage kidneys, loss of sense of taste and smell. And more
- An overreact of an immune system: Pink, red or purple lesions on skin, especially toes with a burning, itching and tender sensation seen as manifestation although we have not found a clear mechanism underlying. It is believed as an inflammatory symptom when a body reacts towards a virus.
Updated numbers and case studies:
- Data collected by 400 dermatologists’ reports in 21 countries have almost a half are cases of COVID-19 to show an association between COVID-19 toes and disease.
- Up to now there are under 100 cases reported across the US and only three deaths in NY of the young population with skin syndromes.
- For example, despite showing no symptoms except for a COVID toes, a case of a 7 year old boy reported in Minnesota was found out with a contraction of COVID-19 in a later stage.
- Another example is a 38-year-old man was diagnosed with COVID-19. He shows very light and mild symptoms until one day he can not walk. His legs become numb and cold.
