TWO doctors in China have woken after battling coronavirus to find that their skin has changed colour.
Dr Yi Fan and Dr Hu Weifeng, both 42, contracted the killer bug in January while treating patients at the Wuhan Central Hospital.
Doctors treating them said they both needed to be put on life support, but as a result of treatment to bring them back from near death their skin turned dark.
Chinese media reports that the skin colour change was caused by a hormonal imbalance that took place, as the doctors’ livers were damaged by the virus.
While Dr Li Shusheng, treating them both, said the colour change is a side effect of one of the medicines they were given early on in their treatment.
He said both doctors’ skin colour should return to normal once their livers begin functioning properly again.
