Post Covid Pulmonary Fibrosis :
After taking consideration of huge numbers of individuals affected by COVID-19, there are some dangerous complications like post covid pulmonary fibrosis , this have major health effects at the population level. Elderly patient who require ICU care and mechanical ventilation are the highest risk to develop lung fibrosis. There's Currently, no fully proven options are available for the treatment in modern medicine for post inflammatory COVID 19 pulmonary fibrosis.
The common symptoms of fibrosis of lung are :

Rapid feeble heartbeats.

As Some people had a cough even after they recovered from COVID-19, Others had scarring in their lungs. Doctors are still studying whether these effects are permanent or might heal over time.
Complications of pulmonary fibrosis may include:
High blood pressure in your lungs (pulmonary hypertension). Unlike systemic high blood pressure, this condition affects only the arteries in your lungs. It begins when the smallest arteries and capillaries are compressed by scar tissue, causing increased resistance to blood flow in your lungs. This in turn raises pressure within the pulmonary arteries and the lower right heart chamber (right ventricle). Some forms of pulmonary hypertension are serious illnesses that become progressively worse and are sometimes fatal.
Right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale). This serious condition occurs when your heart's lower right chamber (ventricle) has to pump harder than usual to move blood through partially blocked pulmonary arteries.
