Coronavirus Information Report

It’s not a symptom you’ll find on the CDC website, but the coronavirus reportedly gave a 62-year-old French man a four-hour-long erection. According to the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, the man had been hospitalized with typical symptoms like fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath.  Later, doctors found he suffered a priapism, where blood can’t leave the penis. Doctors were forced to stick the man’s member with a needle – twice.  YIKES! First to take a blood sample, then to inject him with medication.  Eventually, things settled down four hours later. Researchers believe blood clots are to blame, which are showing up more and more as a symptom of coronavirus infection.
