This Horrifying VR Video Shows How CO.VID-19 Damages Your Lungs, Enough Reasons To Stay Inside Now?

Doctors are using VR technology to look into the damages caused by SARS-Cov-2 to the human lungs. They posted a video and it's terrifying.

We all know that the ongoing pandemic is caused by a virus called SARS-Cov-2 that results in a decrease in the lung’s functions. However, many of us don’t have a clear idea of how it attacks or impact our lungs once it enters our bodies.

Earlier this month, doctors at George Washington University Hospital took in their first patient that was infected with the virus. And now, they are using virtual reality technology to look inside the infected person’s lung. Last week, they also posted a demonstration video on YouTube.

As you can see, in this simulation, the healthy lung tissue is in the blue color while the infected tissue is in yellow.

According to GW Hospital’s Chief of thoracic surgery, Dr. Keith Mortman, there is a contrast between the infected lung tissue with the healthy one. He emphasized that the difference is so obvious that even a regular person can notice from the images. It’s also clear that the virus doesn’t damage a certain part of the lung but rather anywhere.

Mortman expressed his concerns over the potential long-term damage to the lung of those surviving the disease. You can see the complete simulation in the following video.

As of today, the pandemic has spread to many places in India, with 686 confirmed cases and 13 deaths. Meanwhile, globally, it has infected over 470,000 people and claimed the lives of more than 21,000 people including residents and healthcare workers. Cases and death tolls are rising day by day, leaving serious impacts on all aspects of our lives including health, work, and finance. Experts even predict that the pandemic may last for up to 18 months and will peak in 6 months.
