COVID-19 gives the infected people enough symptoms that make the disease similar to the flu. We can talk about manifestations like cough, fever, headaches, muscle and joint pain, and more. But there are plenty of other symptoms that are at least as frightening as the afore-mentioned list.
If you didn’t experience your teeth falling off, it means you’re very lucky. And it’s a sign that you weren’t included among the 61 million cases of COVID-19 infections. Such an awful symptom seems to be arising for those who do not recover fully after the SARS-CoV-2 virus gets out of their system.
Beware of teeth loss
Many reports from survivors of the pandemic indicate that they continue to deal with COVID-19 symptoms even long after the recovery. They suffer from fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, and others for weeks or even months.
According to a new report in The New York Times, a part of those who were once infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus are also dealing with teeth loss. But the weirder part is that those who experience this sinister symptom aren’t also experiencing bleeding and any pain at all.
Dr. William W. Li, who is president and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation, declared for The Times the following:
We are now beginning to examine some of the bewildering and sometimes disabling symptoms that patients are suffering months after they’ve recovered from Covid
One possibility is that the virus damaged the blood vessels that serve the teeth, and that could explain the lack of pain and blood.
It should be only a matter of time until the vaccine for COVID-19 will be fully approved, which means that the ongoing pandemic is approaching its end with every hour that passes. Over 1.4 million people from all over the world died because of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
