Lungs are destroyed due to the presence of 'abnormal cells' in COVID-19 patients, explains scientists.
How COVID-19 affects human lungs? Coronavirus infection is increasing worldwide! New cases of corona infection have increased in India too, but thankfully, the number of recovering patients has also proliferated. People are having more trouble only in severe cases of corona infection—especially those who have severe virus infection in their lungs. In severe infection of the coronavirus, human lungs can be severely damaged and can even stop working. Scientists have found out the primary reason behind this. Researchers at King's College, London, UK, have discovered this in their study.
Research-report published in the journal 'eByomedicine'
This research report has been published in the journal 'eByomedicine', in which the unusual behaviour of the virus has been revealed. This can explain why the disease's symptoms, including difficulty in breathing (breathlessness) and fatigue, persist for months in many patients, which is also known as 'long covid'. Researchers analyzed the heart, lungs, liver and kidney of 41 people who lost their lives to COVID-19 to learn more about the behaviour of the new coronavirus 'SARS-Cov-2'.
Damaged lungs in maximum cases: Lungs were found to be significantly damaged in most of the cases analyzed. According to scientists, additional symptoms were found in about 90 per cent of patients, which were quite different from other forms of pneumonia. Blood clots in the arteries and veins of these people were very high, and many lung cells were abnormally large and had nuclei.
Latest coronavirus research update: This led to the different cells joining together into single large sections. Scientists have analyzed the samples of organs of people who lost their lives with COVID-19 and found that in most cases, the lungs became useless due to the presence of "interconnected" abnormal cells. This is a fact that can throw more light on the severity of the disease.
