    Attention, bellyachers, I think I have got a duty to inform you that in about 20% of all cases of mild corona virus disease, gastrointestinal symptoms such as lack of appetite, diarrhea or nausea may occur. It's also possible that there may be gastrointestinal symptoms only, although in the news, Covid-19 is generally described as a respiratory (lung) disease.

    Worried about coronavirus? Pay attention to your gut

    :cool:

    This is why i am personally so concerned enough the virus. I have, in the last 18 months, had 2 major stomach operations. I am told that the virus would be serious/deadly to me.

    I wouldn't say all, but anxiety can cause those things as well. The lockdown caused a lot of issues. They have a COVID emergency hotline here as well.

    Other than that, I'd agree with your sentiments, interesting connection. The body is interesting.

    Yes that's right. Children especially, I think I've read.

    But in adults the big four seem to be the dry cough, the fever, the aches and pains and the anosmia. Which is exactly what I had - though very little fever. By the way, it doesn't always make it to the lungs. It didn't in my case, I'm thankful to say.

    Lockdown is a harsh word, but the reality is not so harsh. Nonetheless, the problem with the spread is the failure of wearing masks and social distancing in churches campaign events, and social events such as weddings and parties. If we wore masks universally and social distanced the problem of the pandemic would greatly reduced.

    Lovely, just the right time to stoke my hypochondria. (Have been wondering what all those odd feelings were) :D
