Complications from COVID-19 after treatment are numerous, very devastating, and catastrophic to the system. Dr Titus Beyuo said treated patients do not need a test to prove that they have recovered.
He said after two weeks of the infection they are no more a danger to society since they cannot transmit the virus to others. “The damage caused by this virus can be catastrophic, can be devastating to our system,” he said.
Some patients get reinfected, which means that whatever immunity they got from the first infection did not last long enough to inoculate them from reinfection but rather die from the very first complication from their first infection, he added.
“In one systematic review meta-analysis that was done, about 48% of them have chronic fatigue, they are always tired and then loss of energy so what they were able to do, they cannot do anymore,” Dr Bey Luo said.
“You can see someone who is even an athlete, who could do 100 sprints but can barely do a 10-meter sprint without gasping for breath”
He further disclosed that in the respiratory system, of the chest problem, difficulty in breathing will be there. In the lungs, images have shown fibrosis, or damage to the lung tissue.
“One of those that kill people now is either they get kidney shutdown or some come in with a massive clot,” he said. “The damage done by this virus is to cause blood to clot in the system,” he revealed.
