Ministry of Health calls shortness of breath the most important symptom of the coronavirus
Dyspnea may indicate the development of a severe form of coronavirus, said the chief pulmonologist of the Ministry of Health Sergei Avdeev.
- You need to monitor your feelings. The most important symptom is not a high fever and cough, but shortness of breath”, said the expert on the channel“ Russia 1 ”.
Avdeev advised to consult a doctor at the first manifestation of this symptom.
Previously, doctors noted that the loss of smell in an infected COVID-19 could mean that the disease will pass in a mild form.
Meanwhile, European doctors have reported a rare disease that turns out to be fatal for children and, presumably, associated with coronavirus. It's about a disease that resembles Kawasaki syndrome.
Recall that Singaporean scientists made a forecast about the completion of the coronavirus pandemic in Russia. The new forecast cancels the previous one - now the end of the epidemic is "planned" not in July, but in mid-August.
To date, 93,558 new coronavirus infections have been reported in Russia. 8 456 patients recovered. Over the past day, the diagnosis was confirmed in 6,411 patients.
