Many people are still experiencing coronavirus symptoms after they have survived the infection, and according to one trauma surgeon from Texas, the lungs are a massive concern. Dr. Brittany Bankhead-Kendall tweeted, "Post-COVID lungs look worse than any type of terrible smoker's lung we've ever seen. And they collapse. And they clot off. And the shortness of breath lingers on... & on... & on."

The doctor continued and explained that even people who were asymptomatic are showing damage to the lungs. Bankhead-Kendall has treated thousands of coronavirus patients since March, and of those who were asymptomatic, severe signs of lung damage showed up in 70% to 80% of patients. "There are still people who say 'I'm fine. I don't have any issues,' and you pull up their chest X-ray, and they absolutely have a bad chest X-ray," said Bankhead-Kendall.

Bankhead-Kendall further explained that even if you are feeling fine now but show signs of scaring, "it sure is indicative of you possibly having problems later on." For more information on this story, visit this link here.
