Experts are getting a potentially worrisome new view on the novel coronavirus as a lingering eye ailment that can last for weeks. A newly-published report from the National Institute for Infectious Diseases in Italy found the virus persisted in the eyes of one 65-year-old woman for 21 days after she first developed symptoms. The Daily Mail added reports have emerged of people getting ‘pink eye’ with coronavirus across the globe, however, the number of patients affected by the symptom remains quite low.
