A new study conducted by the University of Manchester, Britain, revealed that there are 3 new symptoms of the Corona virus that must be searched for, namely: tinnitus, hearing loss and dizziness, and the researchers said in the study, which was published in the International Journal of Audiology, that the hearing loss may be closely related to the Corona virus, in addition to problems Another auditory may also be a symptom of the deadly virus.
According to the British “Daily Mirror” newspaper, the study indicated that auditory problems are related to the coronavirus, as researchers conducted an investigation for a year, and the long-term effects of the Corona virus on health were the subject of great debate throughout the epidemic.
The experts indicated that tinnitus as a symptom of Corona was 14.8%, with dizziness 7.2%.
The vestibular system includes parts of the inner ear and brain that process sensory information related to controlling balance and eye movements.
They followed up their review a year ago, describing the studies as fair.
The study data primarily used self-reported questionnaires or medical records to obtain symptoms associated with corona, rather than the more scientifically reliable hearing tests.
Kevin Monroe, Professor of Audiology at the University of Manchester in Britain and the Manchester Biomedical Research Center, said:BRC): “There is an urgent need to conduct a careful clinical and diagnostic study to understand the long-term effects of Corona on the hearing system.
He added, “It is also known that viruses such as measles, mumps and meningitis can cause hearing loss, and little is understood about the auditory effects of the Corona virus.”
“Although this review provides additional evidence of an association, the studies we looked at were of varying quality, so more work needs to be done,” he continued.
Professor Monroe led a year-long study in the United Kingdom to investigate the potential long-term effect of the Coronavirus on hearing among people previously treated in hospital for the virus.
The researchers hope to estimate the number and severity of hearing disorders associated with Corona in the United Kingdom, and to discover which parts of the hearing system may be affected by the coronavirus.
