Scientists have described three distinct phases of COVID-19 disease progression in patients, urging medical professionals to consider an individualised treatment approach for patients based on their symptoms corresponding to these stages of infection.
During the early infection phase (Phase 1), they said the virus multiplies inside the body and is likely to cause mild symptoms that may be confused with a common cold or flu.
The second phase is the pulmonary phase (Phase 2), when the immune system becomes strongly affected by infection, and leads to primarily respiratory symptoms such as persistent cough, shortness of breath, and low oxygen levels.
The third, hyperinflammatory phase, occurs when a hyperactivated immune system may cause injury to the heart, kidneys, and other organs.
The Chinese army suffered 35 casualties during the violent clash with the Indian military in eastern Ladakh's Galwan Valley, according to US intelligence reports. The figure could be a combination of total number of soldiers killed and seriously wounded.
The Indian Army had earlier said 20 Army personnel, including a colonel, were killed in the biggest-ever military confrontation between the two armies in over five decades.
The clash was the biggest confrontation between the two militaries after their 1967 clashes in Nathu La in 1967 when India lost around 80 soldiers while over 300 Chinese army personnel were killed in the confrontation.
