Covid-19 affects the body from head to toe, new study reveals

Feb 22, 2021 15:07 IST

It is commonly believed that the heart and lungs are most affected by Covid-19. However, a new study by a group of Indian researchers from five cities shows that Covid-19 affects almost every part of the body, from head to toe. 

The team, from institutes including PGIMER, Chandigarh and AIIMS, Nagpur, studied histopathology, which is the damage to tissues of various organs, and found that Covid-19 affects the kidneys and reproductive organs as well. 

The study stated that especially in elderly Covid-19 patients and those with comorbidities, the cardiovascular, urinary and reproductive systems tend to get affected as well.
