Chinese Australian doctors were infected with the new coronavirus in April, leaving permanent damage

According to a letter from New Zealand, Warren Lee is a Chinese Australian doctor! He was infected with the new coronavirus in April, leaving permanent damage

originally healthy and keen on exercise, he has not only heart scar, epilepsy, but also can’t drive any more physical exercise!

his case highlights that covid-19 can also have serious and long-term effects on relatively young people without known health conditions.

on April 1, Dr. Li, wearing a mask and protective clothing, visited patients with flu symptoms in the clinic. He suddenly found that his throat also had a slight pain.

according to a video posted on Facebook, Dr. Li said in the video, “there is no special feeling, just an itchy throat.”

he said, “I closed the door, left the office, and went straight to a drive in checkpoint for testing. I went home, closed the door, and spent 29 days alone in my room. ”

for the first five days, he had a slight fever of 37.5 degrees, a slight cough, pain in his back and neck, and nausea.

“I’m still young. I’ve participated in road cycling, Sydney cycling club racing and overseas competitions. I think I’m quite healthy.”

but when he recovered from the infection, he tried to struggle to ride a kilometer smooth road to the local barber shop. When he finally arrived, he felt his chest “bouncing around.”.

about six weeks after recovery, Dr. Li had seizures at work and was hospitalized for four days. EEG monitoring found that Dr. Li is likely to have been accompanied by epilepsy symptoms.

he said that when his heart was scanned at the hospital, he found a scar “right in the middle of my heart,” a condition known as myocarditis, “which is part of the virus.”.

a small number of covid-19 patients still have symptoms after recovery, that is, a long time after the test results are negative. My sister was unfortunately one of them

I explained my problem to the doctor and stressed that I felt “confused in my brain.”. “Fog in your head? It’s not even a proper medical term. ” She said.

take me as an example. I was ill for two weeks in a row, felt good for four days, and then suddenly fell ill for another two weeks. Over the next two months, my condition recurred and improved again and again.

“I’m young and I’ll do well.” They laughed at themselves. Maybe they can, but I’m 26 years old and I don’t have any underlying diseases. I’ve been sick for five months.

reporter Hannah Davis explained: “of these patients in the study, 61% felt dizzy, 32% felt numb in limbs, 29% felt hallucinations or lucid dreams, and 27% felt short-term memory loss.”

she pointed out that the US Centers for Disease Control estimates that 20% of young people with no previous medical history will have a long recovery time, much longer than expected in two to three weeks.

the study of King’s College London also confirmed the nonlinear symptoms of the new crown. The study showed that patients experienced symptoms such as headache, increased heart rate, chest pain, gastrointestinal and neurological symptoms in the weeks and months after the initial infection.

infectious disease expert Debbie Bogart said in an interview with the media: “we don’t know the biological mechanism leading to these long-term symptoms This virus can’t be compared with ordinary flu. ”

I can understand why people are generally ignorant of the long-term complications of coronavirus, because I have responded to other people’s diseases in the past.

when you are in good health, you don’t worry about getting sick; you want to continue your life. That’s why we turn a blind eye to animals on farms or war-torn people.

I’m scared, but I appreciate what I can do. Sometimes I can read books, walk and chat. I can write. They make life less terrible.

my story will be a warning to others: it’s much worse than a cold.
