The study, published on Wednesday in the journal JAMA, analyzed 1,116 cases of young people who were treated at 66 hospitals in 31 states. Slightly more than half the patients had acute Covid-19, the predominantly lung-related illness that afflicts most adults who get sick from the virus, while 539 patients had the inflammatory syndrome that has erupted in some children weeks after they have had a typically mild initial infection.

Coronavirus loss of smell: ‘Meat tastes like petrol’

Losing the ability to smell or taste are two of the symptoms associated with Covid-19. But while many have regained their senses, for others it has turned into a phenomenon called parosmia, leaving them trapped in a world of distorted scents.

What happens when flu meets Covid-19?

The real unknown is what Covid-19 does around other viruses. Every autumn there is a predictable series of outbreaks of respiratory viruses. It starts with rhinovirus, the main cause of the common cold, which breaks out every September as young children go to school and swap mucus. As no parent needs to be told, children are to sniffles what mosquitoes are to malaria.

Can we detect COVID-19 by analysing speech signals?

You know how people often just 'sound sick'? Researchers are investigating just that. By processing speech recordings of people infected with Covid-19 but not showing symptoms, researchers found evidence of vocal biomarkers, or measurable indicators, of the disease.

Covid-19 long-term effects: People with persistent symptoms struggle to get care

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, “the assumption was that people would get better, and then it was over,” Peluso says. “But we know from lots of other viral infections that there is almost always a subset of people who experience longer-term consequences.” He explains these can be due to damage to the body during the initial illness, the result of lingering viral infection, or because of complex immunological responses that occur after the initial disease.

COVID-19 Can Cause Loss of Smell, And Scientists Finally Discovered Why

One of the most common causes of smell loss is a viral infection, such as the common cold, sinus or other upper respiratory tract infections. Those coronaviruses that don't cause deadly diseases, such as COVID-19, SARS and MERS, are one of the causes of the common cold and have been known to cause smell loss.

Chronic coronavirus: These patients have been sick for weeks, but doctors don’t know why

Melanie Montano, 32, developed a fever, cough, stomach problems, and lost her sense of taste and smell like other sufferers of the novel coronavirus. Unlike most of them, though, her symptoms never went away. Dr's are unsure whether those symptoms suggest virus is still alive in the body and creating continued havoc, or whether it has come and gone, leaving a lingering immune or inflammatory response that makes people continue to feel sick.

Prevalence of Asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 Infection

A new analysis from Scripps Research found 30-40% of people with coronavirus are asymptomatic, but that factor doesn’t mean they are immune from impacts of the disease. Research suggests patients who don’t show any symptoms may still suffer internal organ damage, including lung abnormalities.

How coronavirus attacks the human body

Today, there is widespread recognition the novel coronavirus is far more unpredictable than a simple respiratory virus. Often it attacks the lungs, but it can also strike anywhere from the brain to the toes. Many doctors are focused on treating the inflammatory reactions it triggers and its capacity to cause blood clots, even as they struggle to help patients breathe.

Is Muscle Pain a Symptom of Coronavirus? Doctors Explain How it Feels, Why it Happens

Dr. Barzin explains that muscle pain that results from a viral infection is caused by damage to the muscle fibers from the virus itself. The virus also triggers an inflammatory response within your body—through inflammatory cytokines that essentially signal the immune system to get to work—that can cause abnormal tissue breakdown.
