The addition of new variants of the coronavirus has made it possible for the number of infected to increase significantly, where every day more and more, the symptoms of the coronavirus pandemic are increasing.
One of the main symptoms has been fatigue, loss of smell and chest pain. But a question has been raised whether hair loss is also one of the symptoms of coronavirus.
According to a new scientific study, almost a quarter of those affected by Covid-19 can face hair loss for several months in a row, even after recovering from it.
The study, published in The Lancet, found that 359 of 1,655 hospitalized patients in Wuhan, China, 22 percent of them, had experienced hair loss six months after recovering.
According to dermatologists, hair loss is a normal physiological response to a stressful event like an infectious disease and is only temporary, but Covid can be associated with conditions like alopecia, which can lead to irreversible hair loss.
Doctors already list 14 symptoms including fatigue, insomnia, dizziness, joint pain, depression, anxiety, hair loss missing from the list.
"The purpose of this study was to describe the long-term health consequences of patients with Covid-19, who have been hospitalized for many weeks," said the authors from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences.
This is the longest-lasting study in terms of keeping patients under observation.
