The lungs are one of the most damaged organs by the coronavirus. A surgeon has found that the lungs of people who have taken Covid-19 are many times more damaged than those of smokers.
Dr. Brittany Bankehead-Kendall has treated thousands of patients since the March pandemic broke out in Texas. She says that the lungs of smokers are damaged, but the patients who have passed the coronavirus are "almost white", which indicates that there is a lack of air passage to the organs.
"I do not know who needs to hear this, but the lungs after Covid-19 look many times worse than the lungs of the most 'terrible' smoker we have ever seen. "They block and then clot, then cause difficulty breathing and so on," she wrote in a Twitter post, referring to the lung graphs performed by patients.
In an interview with CBS-DFW he stressed that many experts care about the mortality rate and not the severe effects it leaves on the coronavirus in patients who survive the disease.
"Everyone is so worried about the mortality rate of the coronavirus and that is terrible. "For all the survivors, this remains a problem," said the doctor.
Often times, the coronavirus causes problems with pneumonia, which occurs when the lungs fill with fluid. As the air sacs fill with fluid, they are unable to absorb much oxygen, leading to symptoms such as coughing and stinging. Studies have also found epithelial cell damage, which blocks the airways from the nose to the lungs, of coronavirus patients.
