Kenyan Doctors have raised concern over New Covid-19 Symptoms.
According to the Chief Medical Officer of Nairobi West Hospital Dr. Andrew Gachie, patients with the new symptoms end up at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) as soon they are admitted at the facility.
One of the things we have noticed is that the majority of patients are coming in with difficulty in breathing with no fever or anything, and by the time they are admitted quite a majority of them will require intensive care,” Gachie said.
Nairobi West Hospital management has since put up a poster to remind the staff about the already known symptoms presented by those infected with Covid-19, along with the new ones.
The new symptoms that have caught the attention of Kenyan doctors have been reported in many other countries around the world.
“The disease has manifested an additional number of symptoms,” Mwangangi said.
The initial symptoms like coughing, fever, shortness of breath, and loss of taste and smell have become too familiar to doctors examining patients hence a concern over the emerging ones.
This comes even as Kenya’s Covid-19 cases continue to rise with questions as to whether the country is headed for a third wave spur debate from health experts.
