Hearing changes can signal coronavirus infection. According to the Express portal, scientists from University College London and the Royal National Committee have identified cases of complete hearing loss in severe cases of COVID-19.
Some patients with coronavirus experience ringing or tinnitus, according to a study by British scientists. In this regard, experts urge doctors to pay attention to any changes in hearing in patients when diagnosed with coronavirus infection, in order to prevent possible hearing loss.
Earlier, Brazilian scientists said that coronavirus causes the death of neurons in the cerebral cortex, even in patients who have had a mild illness. A similar effect of the virus, according to experts, leads to the manifestations of diseases such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
