Acute Complications

Overview

A disease complication is the unfavorable result of an underlying medical condition and may result in the development of new diseases or medical conditions. It is not currently known why COVID-19 complications develop. The complications could be due to direct damage from the virus itself or indirectly from the body's inflammatory response. These conditions can also be caused by other risk factors not related to COVID-19. It is not clear why some COVID positive people develop complications while others have an uneventful recovery. When a complication happens rather suddenly or close in proximity to a COVID-19 infection, it is known as an acute complication.
