Kidney Failure, Skin Spots, Clots: 12 Coronavirus Complications And Symptoms Affecting The Entire Body | Univision Salud News

From the start of the outbreak, the coronavirus-generating disease has been reported as a respiratory condition. In fact, when the World Health Organization (WHO) spoke to the world in early January about the then-nascent “outbreak” in Wuhan, it noted that “Chinese authorities have reported … pneumonia patients” and that a new coronavirus could be responsible.
