– Hearing impairment: If you have noticed ringing noise or some kind of hearing impairment in the recent past, then that could be a sign of coronavirus. A study published in the International Journal of Audiology said that the COVID-19 infection can lead to auditory problems. The researchers found 56 studies that identified an association between COVID-19 and auditory and vestibular problems. They clubbed data from 24 of the studies to estimate that the prevalence of hearing loss was 7.6 per cent.
