Deterioration in hearing and persistent tinnitus may be another feature of COVID-19 infection, researchers report. A significant number of patients reported hearing loss and other auditory problems eight weeks after being discharged from hospital for coronavirus. Researchers say it is possible COVID-19 could damage parts of the auditory system, resulting in hearing loss.
