Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –
The World Health Organization and scientists continue to research about Covid-19 diseases caused by the Corona virus. Research covers the latest Corona symptoms that may not be understood.
Symptoms of Corona are no longer just fever, cough and shortness of breath. There are 3 new Corona symptoms that you may not understand, or even know about now. The following include:
Quoting from Healthline, parosmia is a disorder that causes sufferers to experience “olfactory hallucinations” so that they feel strange and unfamiliar smells.
About 86 percent of people infected with Covid-19 lose their sense of smell, such as when their nose is blocked. So far, the cause of parosmia in corona patients is not known medically, but the research stage is still ongoing.
Experts say the parosmia condition will not be permanent and can be recovered with some help from anglers, such as using certain essential oils or supplements from doctors.
Another recent symptom of Corona is delirium, which attacks the sufferer mentally so that he experiences confusion accompanied by a somewhat dazed condition.
In general, this delirium is experienced by corona patients in the elderly (elderly) group, and the symptoms are neurological.
According to Javier Correa, a researcher from the University of Catalonia, delirium is not only mentally disturbing, but also to the central nervous system, namely the brain.
There are 3 possible causes of delirium, namely a lack of oxygen supply to the brain, inflammation of brain tissue, or the virus having the ability to flow in the blood to the brain.

3. Eye pain
Based on the results of recent research published in BMJ Open Ophthalmology, the latest and significant symptom of Corona patients is eye pain.
Other data shows that eye pain felt by corona sufferers is divided into three, namely photophobia (18 percent), eye pain (16 percent) and itchy eyes (17 percent).
On average, the problem of eye pain in corona patients will last for less than two weeks. Eye pain is also included in the list of corona symptoms released by WHO.
So far, the validity of research on the causes of eye pain as a symptom of corona is still being deepened. Of the many cases that have occurred, symptoms of the new corona will appear about 5-6 days after someone is first infected with the virus, but it could also be 14 days after being infected.
If you or someone around you experiences the latest Corona symptoms and the condition is quite serious, immediately contact a doctor or health facility, so that it can be treated as quickly as possible.
The latest Corona symptoms are currently growing. Previously, the indication that someone had the corona virus was a high fever above 37 degrees Celsius, coughing up to shortness of breath.
