The disease caused by the coronavirus that caused the global pandemic, COVID-19, is known to cause lung damage. As more people become infected, however, more information about the disease arises. Even if they had no underlying kidney issues before becoming infected with the coronavirus, some people with serious COVID-19 infections are showing signs of kidney damage. Kidney damage can be serious enough to necessitate dialysis in some cases. Some hospitals are claiming that they are running out of the machines and sterile fluids required to conduct these kidney procedures due to a surge in COVID-19 patients. Many patients with extreme COVID-19 may have other chronic illnesses, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Any of these factors boost the chances of developing kidney disease.
