Scientists from the US National Institutes of Health have determined the duration of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the body.
This was reported by RIA Novosti.
According to research, the SARS-CoV-2 virus can enter most organs of the body, especially the heart and brain, and stay there for more than seven months.
The scientists came to this conclusion as a result of their observations in different anatomical regions for about 230 days. During the observations, SARS-CoV-2 was found in almost every organ of the body. The virus is widespread even in patients without mild symptoms.
However, the scientists said they did not find any serious inflammation outside the lungs.
