As researchers race to test vaccines against COVID-19, this infectious disease is. still causing thousands of deaths every day on a global scale.
If you've already heard of the coronavirus before this pandemic, it might sound weird to you that such a common virus could be responsible for this destruction. However, scientists identified hundreds of coronavirus strains that cause varying degrees of upper respiratory tract infections.
Unfortunately, the coronavirus family is known to change its genetic material (similar to our DNA), which means that occasionally, a new viral strain emerges with destructive properties, such as SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19).
Similar to the common cold and the flu, COVID-19 gets transmitted via respiratory droplets, which are tiny water vesicles that contain a large number of the virus. The vesicles get released when sick individuals cough or sneeze.
In this article, we will discuss the relationship between COVID-19 and hair loss, as well as how to deal with this issue.
