MedCram - Medical Lectures Explained CLEARLY
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 44 with Roger Seheult, MD of https://www.MedCram.com
There is new evidence that loss of smell (anosmia) may be an indicator of COVD-19 infection. New reports also suggest that COVID-19 may cause conjunctivitis (pink eye), and be potentially spread through contact with the conjunctiva. Dr. Seheult discusses evidence about how untreated fever may be beneficial for fighting viral illnesses such as coronavirus.
