Vic­tim made deaf

Daily Express - - CORONAVIRU­S: VICTORY FOR EXPRESS CAMPAIGN -

A COVID pa­tient went deaf in one ear after con­tract­ing the virus in the first case of its kind in the UK.

The 45- year- old had asthma but was oth­er­wise fit and healthy with no his­tory of hear­ing prob­lems.

The man’s hear­ing par­tially re­cov­ered after he was treated with steroids and doc­tors are now warn­ing oth­ers to seek ur­gent help.

One ex­pert cited “a lack of dis­cus­sion” on Covid and deaf­ness.
