    What the study said?

    In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, rhabdomyolysis in the novel coronavirus was investigated.

    The study noted: “Rhabdomyolysis is a life-threatening condition caused by skeletal muscle damage from various aetiologies

    “Recently, a case of COVID-19-induced rhabdomyolysis was reported from Wuhan, China, in which the patient developed rhabdomyolysis on hospital day nine.

    “We reported the first case of a COVID-19 patient who presented with symptoms of rhabdomyolysis, including muscles pain and weakness.

    “There are several possible hypotheses explaining the pathogenesis of viral-induced rhabdomyolysis.

    “Firstly, direct viral invasion can lead to rhabdomyolysis.

    “Secondly, a robust immune response to viruses resulting in cytokine storms and damaging muscle tissues.

    “Thirdly, circulating viral toxins may directly destroy muscle cell membranes.”
