Why is affecting so many Covid-19 patients?01 Jun, 2021 | 09:03
It is generally affecting Covid-19 patients who are prescribed steroids or those who have uncontrolled diabetes. Though steroids are an effective treatment for some of the Covid-19 patients who develop severe inflammatory response. But steroids should always be given under medical supervision as if given too early, too muchandfor too long a duration, these can make one susceptible to catching secondary bacterial or fungal infections.
