No disability cases following coronavirus recorded in Kazakhstan - Ministry of Health Care
Almaty. June 3. KazTAG - No disability cases following coronavirus have been recorded in Kazakhstan, said Magripa Yembergenova, director of department of medical aid.
"All the discharged patients are under medical control. No disability cases following coronavirus infection have been recorded," reads the statement.
In severe cases of coronavirus there is a risk of developing pulmonary fibrosis, which can lead to deterioration in the patient's quality of life.
“Coronavirus often affects the lungs to varying degrees: from asymptomatic to severe pneumonia. Some patients may develop severe lung damage, requiring invasive and non-invasive ventilation. In most cases, changes in lung tissue are completely restored without any consequences. In more severe cases, there is a risk of developing pulmonary fibrosis, which can lead to shortness of breath, decreased physical activity and result in deterioration in the quality of life in the future," she said.
