Medical interpretation of hair loss

Last summer, Dr. Natalie Lambert of Indiana University School of Medicine conducted an online survey, with 1,567 people who had suffered from the symptoms of “long-term covid”, to find that 423 of them had developed hair loss.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hair loss caused by Covid is mainly due to what is known as “telogen effluvium” or (TE) – a condition that results from a disruption in the hair growth cycle.

On the other hand, specialists at the Belgravia Center in London reported that there has been an increase in the incidence of telogen effluvium since the beginning of the epidemic, reaching 64 percent in males and 38 percent in women.
