Covid-19 Chart of Effects

I’ve done a chart of observed symptoms of Covid-19 that seem to occur and their statistical likelihood of effects based on how the infection is handled by their persons immune system. Covid-19 uses the ACE2 enzyme in the body that can be found in many cells that surround a lot of the major organs of the body, so interferes with an integral part of the system. If the damage it does is superficial and the body can easily repair itself, as what happens in the young and healthy, then it will probably have little effect, though may cause a Kawasaki type autoimmune response in some cases, attacking the organs, especially the liver. The strength of the immune and auto-repair systems is the key, with too much infiltration and damage to the cells much harder to repair as the disease progresses further into the system. The age at which the person contracts the disease is important as it may cause a proportional effect that is equivalent to an advancement in years.

Variation in range of symptoms of Covid indicating level of infection:

  • No effect – outcome: short lived and complete recovery. Little damage. Hospitalisation unlikely.
  • Mild effect with headache and cough – outcome: short lived and complete recovery. Little damage. Hospitalisation unlikely.
  • Mild effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, sore throat – outcome: short lived, mild problems for a while, but complete recovery. Little damage. Hospitalisation unlikely.
  • Mild effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, sore throat, muscle pains, chest pain  – outcome: short lived, mild problems that may last for a while, but complete recovery. A small amount of long-term damage. Hospitalisation unlikely.
  • Mild effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, sore throat, hoarseness, loss of appetite, Fever  – outcome: moderate duration, mild problems that may last for quite a while, but mostly complete recovery. A small amount of long-term damage. Hospitalisation possible.
  • Medium effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, sore throat, loss of appetite, diarrhoea, chest pain – outcome: moderate duration, but lingering problems. Some damage that may show up in later years. Hospitalisation possible.
  • Major effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, hoarseness, chest pain, fatigue, fever – outcome: longer duration, possibly for months, problems that may last for a year, longer recovery that may take a couple of years. Some damage that will probably show up in later years and long covid a possibility. Hospitalisation quite likely.
  • Severe effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, sore throat, hoarseness, loss of appetite, chest pain, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain, fever – outcome: long duration, possibly for a year, problems that may last for longer than a year and a much longer recovery time that may not return person to level they were in prior to infection. Likely permanent damage to system that will show up in later years and long covid likely. Hospitalisation quite likely.
  • Severe effect with headache, cough, loss of smell, sore throat, hoarseness, loss of appetite, chest pain, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain, shortness of breath, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, Fever – outcome: long duration, possibly for over a year, problems that may last for longer than a couple of years and a much longer recovery time. Probably will not return person to level they were in prior to infection. Very Likely permanent damage to system that will show up in later years and long covid very likely. Hospitalisation likely.
