The main symptoms of mycoplasma infection, which were identified in Russia after an outbreak in China, as well as in a number of European countries, are named. RBC writes about this with reference to infectious disease doctor Nikolai Malyshev.
He noted that there are at least “three cardinal symptoms: fever, respiratory symptoms (cough, runny nose, sore throat) and intoxication.
“It’s not a very pleasant disease,” the doctor added, noting that there is no vaccine against mycoplasma infection. The doctor reassured, emphasizing that “with early detection, diagnosis and appropriate medical care, everything ends more or less normally.”
Mycoplasmosis has been known for a long time. The causative agent of this disease is mycoplasma pneumonia; those infected may have damage to the upper respiratory tract, as well as damage to the genitourinary system, added Sergei Voznesensky, associate professor of the Department of Infectious Diseases of RUDN University. He warned that the pathogen causes mycoplasma pneumonia, which can be mild in some and aggressive and severe in others.
Recall that in November The Telegraph reported an outbreak of unknown pneumonia in China. Later, cases of the disease were identified in Denmark, the Netherlands, France and the American state of Ohio, as well as in Russia.
