When the COVID-19 virus enters the body, the immune system develops some cells that fight the virus. Sometimes, the infected person’s immune system may produce extra cells, which could harm vital organs of your body.
The vital organ is lungs. When extra cells are produced, scarring takes place in the lungs. Due to this condition, the lung capacity will decrease and it leads to shortness of breath.

When COVID-19 remains for a long period of time inside the body, it affects the kidney too. According to a report presented by the society of nephrology, it was said that abnormalities are present in 20-50% of patients, affected by a coronavirus. Some of the diseases that can take place as a result of coronavirus are kidney failure and urine infection.
When the coronavirus attacks inside your body, it not only sticks on one organ but affects other organs as well. The majority of the symptoms that Covid-19 patients were showing are the result of an attack on the nervous system.
According to a study by JAMA neurology, it was found that symptoms such as dizziness, headache, and smell impairment were common. Also, these symptoms were seen in 40% of Covid patients in China.
Studies also show that research will be continued until the relation between COVID-19 and the nervous system is found out.
