Tinnitus, also known as ear ringing, is another symptom to take seriously, as per Professor Spector.
“It suggests another part of the body is being affected, something internal, more close to the brain.”
Prof. Spector and his team conducted a survey to check the prevalence of tinnitus in people affected with COVID-19.
It was found that 19 percent or one in five of COVID infected people did have ear problems.
According to the ZOE study, of the 14,500 people who participated in the survey, 5,000 tested positive for coronavirus and ear ringing. As per the patients, the symptoms “comes and goes and can be mild to moderate for weeks or months”.
