About 1.230 million people have died as a result of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which has been confirmed in around 50 million people. Until December 2019, the SARS-CoV-2 virus from Wuhan, China, had been the primary cause of Coavid-19 disease. According to surveys, COVID-19 patients are more likely to suffer from pattern hair loss than their age-matched, non-infected counterparts. It suggests that the coronavirus-CoV-2 infection causes diffuse baldness. COVID-19 patients in remission frequently complained of alopecia. SARS-CoV-2 infection caused hair loss in about half of the female participants, whereas no such hair loss occurred in the control group. Hypoxemia, which causes cutaneous ischemia, is another probable pathogenetic factor.
