Coronavirus latest: Red eyes or conjunctivitis could mean you’re at risk of COVID-19

“The ocular implications of human CoV infections have not been widely studied. However, CoVs have been known to cause various ocular infections in animals.” 

The study also noted that more research needs to be conducted on how coronavirus could affect the eyes. 

The American Academy of Ophthalmology said: “Several reports suggest the virus can cause a mild follicular conjunctivitis otherwise indistinguishable from other viral causes and possibly transmitted by aerosol contact.

“Patients who present to ophthalmologists for conjunctivitis who also have fever and respiratory symptoms including cough and shortness of breath and who have recently travelled internationally could represent cases of Covid-19.
