COVID-19: A new study has revealed that patients suffering from the coronavirus first gets diarrhea, due to which the virus increases


There is an atmosphere of fear and panic among the people about COVID-19 spreading like a disaster in the country and the world. People are taking many measures to avoid it, but the question remains in their mind is: what will happen first to them if they get infected by this virus. Meanwhile, a new study published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology has revealed that people who had coronavirus found the first signs of diarrhea-like digestive problems when they were affected by the virus.

In its early symptoms you can suffer from:

Difficulty to breathe.

But if this infection worsens then you may have:

Chest pain.
Not breathing.

Health experts from all over the world are trying to gather new information about this virus, although the list of its symptoms is getting longer. A recent study published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology assessed data from 204 coronavirus patients in Hubei Province, China. The researchers found that 48.5% of patients who became infected with the virus came to the hospital having digestive problems such as diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The study revealed that before the coronavirus respiratory symptoms, the person shows digestive symptoms.


Problems like diarrhea and vomiting

The findings of this study have raised doubts over additional evidence suggesting that COVID-19, aka coronavirus, may cause gastrointestinal symptoms in some people. A case report published in the New England Journal of Medicine on America’s first coronavirus patient revealed that the patient first had thin diarrhea and stomach problems on the second day of hospitalization.


People have digestive problems

Co-editor in China of American Journal of Gastroenterology and MD Brennan M.R. Spiegel states that more research is needed to understand the role and effects of digestive symptoms in patients suffering from the coronavirus. Brennan also released a press release on awareness of digestive symptoms initially aimed to detect the coronavirus. It will help to prevent coronavirus when it is first detected.

In this study, COVID-19 patients with digestive symptoms were found to have worse clinical outcomes and a higher risk of mortality while those with no digestive symptoms were found to have lower mortality. Therefore, the importance of symptoms such as diarrhea is being emphasized so that COVID-19 does not develop respiratory symptoms along with the initial symptoms of the disease and can be detected beforehand. In this case, coronavirus can be detected early, thereby providing the right treatment and preventing it from spreading to others.


Do these remedies to cure the digestive system:

  1. Eat more fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes.
  2. Stay hydrated and drink as much water as possible.
  3. Stay away from smoking, excess caffeine, and alcohol.
  4. Eat fruits such as papaya, pomegranate, orange, mango, guava, and pear. The digestive system is maintained by taking them.
  5. Exercise daily in the morning.
