The British Medical Organization has warned that those recovering from the emerging coronavirus can be exposed to sepsis, and according to one study, the organization indicated that about 20 thousand people who survived the coronavirus might develop this disease within a year of their recovery..
According to the “Euronews” channel, the British organization stated that one out of every five people receiving hospital treatment for coronavirus is at risk..
A person becomes infected with sepsis when the patient’s body overreacts to the infection, and this causes the immune system to operate, which leads to tissue damage and organ failure, which may cause death.
Experts believe that if this disorder is discovered in a timely manner, it can be treated with antibiotics before it turns into a “septic” shock that damages the vital organs. In this regard, Dr. Ron Daniels, founder of sepsis, says that every person diagnosed with a covid -19, Even those who only experienced mild symptoms, should know how to detect the disorder and its symptoms.
Experts have identified six symptoms of sepsis that must be noted, and they explain the disorder:
–Feeling confused with difficulty speaking.
–Feeling severe muscle or joint pain.
–Not to urinate for a day.
–Feeling of suffocation and severe shortness of breath.
–Feeling of deteriorating health, as if the injured “will die.”“.
–Skin color change.
The British Septic Disease Organization wants the government to invest in a national awareness campaign in this regard, warning that a sharp rise in cases can cause the death of a large number of people, and the British Health Authority may cost more than one billion pounds to care for patients. The numbers indicate that more than 240,000 cases of sepsis are reported annually in Britain.
