Coronavirus May Multiply in Human Intestines – Scientists
Scientists say that, according to the data obtained, the coronavirus can be located not only in the lungs, but also in the human intestines, and spread through waste.
This is stated in a study by Chinese scientists published in the journal Nature Medicine.
“Intestinal cells can easily become infected with SARS-CoV-2 and become the distribution center for COVID-19 in the body. This has been proven after culturing an artificial analogue of the intestines of bats and humans and analyzing the waste. It turned out that viral particles can be stored in waste and then successfully spread from both a bat to a person and vice versa, ”says the message.
Scientists have pointed out that new data on the spread of the coronavirus explain the presence of intestinal disorders in infected patients.
