British scientists have found that Covid-19 may cause sudden and permanent hearing loss, adding that such problems need early detection and urgent treatment. This statement was made by researchers from University College London and the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, according to Express.
"Despite the considerable literature on Covid-19 and the various symptoms associated with the virus, there is a lack of discussion on the relationship between COVID-19 and hearing," scientists said.
According to them, hearing loss and tinnitus are symptoms that have been seen in patients with both COVID-19 and influenza virus, but have not been highlighted.
But just because you hear a ringing in your ears, it doesn't necessarily mean that you have coronavirus.
Tinnitus isn't usually a sign of anything serious, and there are already a series of treatments available for the condition.
It could also be caused by diabetes, anxiety, or even by taking some types of medication.
Your tinnitus is more likely to be caused by COVID-19 if it's accompanied by any of the more common warning signs.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine has already procured Remdesivir, the drug that is supposed to help fight symptoms of coronavirus.
"It is procured by state enterprise Medical Procurements of Ukraine. And currently, it is being shipped to Ukraine, so it will show up in the near future," Viktor Lyashko said.
