In recent developments, a rare but serious fungal infection, known as mucormycosis and colloquially as “black fungus”, is being detected relatively frequently among patients suffering from COVID-19 in some states. This has raised the question about the known manifestations of post-COVID-19 conditions by several people across India.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), when a virus is widely circulating in a population and causing many infections, the likelihood of the virus mutating increases. The more opportunities a virus has to spread, the more it replicates and the more opportunities it has to undergo changes. Therefore, the people infected with the coronavirus are likely to experience a range of ailments post-recovery. Some of them may include troubling physical symptoms, such as severe fatigue and increased risk of damage to the heart, lungs and brain. Moreover, signs such as breathlessness and fatigue can signal heart diseases, so if you are to experience the same, you should contact a medical expert immediately.

One of the complications being witnessed in patients recovered from COVID-19 includes the impact on the kidneys. Kidney injury has been witnessed in several recovered coronavirus patients across the globe. Signs of kidney problems in patients with COVID-19 include high levels of protein in the urine and abnormal blood work.

Meanwhile, back in November 2020, a global analysis published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism found that up to 14.4 per cent of people who were hospitalized with severe COVID-19 also developed diabetes.

Another possible side effect of the coronavirus is that it can lead to blood clots in some people. Blood clots with COVID-19 have most often been seen in people who’ve been hospitalized with the disease.

Therefore, it becomes pertinent to focus on post-covid care in order to avoid an array of diseases that could lead to multiple problems in the human body. According to health experts, following a general health routine that involves a clean, nutritious diet, exercise, stress-relieving measures, and yoga often aid early recovery.
