A woman stripped naked as a result of a bizarre coronavirus side effect.



The unnamed female, who is in her 30s, spent several days acting in a strange manner due to a rare complication of COVID-19 as she also drank shower gel and washed her clothes in a toilet.

A relative had brought her into hospital in Qatar as they had been concerned by her erratic behaviour.

Doctors wrote in the British Medical Journal Case Reports: "She had been agitated, required less sleep and had been talking excessively.

"In addition, she had appeared confused, talking to people who were not there (suggesting she was responding to hallucinations), calling family members by the wrong name and on one occasion taking her clothes off for no reason.

"On the day of admission, she impulsively drank 100ml of body wash which was the final factor leading her relative to bring her to hospital."
