The study examined the health profiles of 86 coronavirus patients in Egypt. It turned out that those who had poor oral hygiene had COVID-19 more severe and longer. The patients were also found to have high levels of C-reactive protein.

In addition, a coronavirus infection can accumulate in the patient's mouth. With this course of the disease, the viral load increases.
