Coronavirus now affects all walks of life, with people instructed to stay home, isolate themselves and monitor for any unusual symptoms. The most common and known symptoms of coronavirus include fever, cough and shortness of breath. There were other signs reported, such as loss of taste and smell or even hearing loss. There is another lesser known symptom.
If a person has a runny nose or itchy eyes, that does not mean that they necessarily have the new coronavirus. However, if there is a dry cough, fatigue and fever, they may be at risk of having coronavirus.
The problem that many face is finding out whether it is just a seasonal flu or indeed the deadly virus.
If a person feels unable to wake up after sleeping, it can also signal a potential virus infection. According to a report by the Journal of American Medical Association, 98% of Covid-19 patients who were hospitalized had a fever, between 76% and 82% had a dry cough and 11% to 44% reported exhaustion and fatigue.
“Not all symptoms are created equally. While it may look like you have coronavirus, you may just be having allergies or the flu, ”said Lindsey Elmore, pharmacotherapy specialist at PharmaD.
Similar studies have been carried out on fruit flies with the results showing that flies that slept when exposed to bacteria had a greater chance of surviving than those that continued with their normal daily activities.
The results of the studies indicate the power of sleep during these difficult times.
When the body is fighting foreign invaders, it needs as much energy as possible.
If a person is pushing his body to the limit, it offers an extra challenge for the immune system to be able to do its job.
