The coronavirus has a negative effect on the kidneys and impairs blood filtration. Reported by Izvestia, citing a study by Brazilian scientists from the Federal University of São Paulo.

Experts have found that with covid, the ACE2 protein disappears. This damages the organ and can lead to irreversible consequences. Acute kidney damage is found in 20-40% of patients with coronavirus. According to published data, their recovery is slow, and some infected have complications that require dialysis.

Scientists believe that the virus can significantly narrow the vessels in the kidneys, which will make them work worse. In addition, acute and long-term illnesses can occur with COVID-19.
