According to Dr. Kriti Jain, skin specialist at Kiara Clinic, Delhi, “I came across many patients who complained about severe hair loss after 30-35 days of recovery & few noticed it when they were suffering from the virus.

We all know that losing 100 strands a day is normal. Our hair cycle typically has three phases: Growing stage, transitional phase, and the last one is a resting stage (Telogen stage).

Telogen effluvium is associated with the telogen phase. In the telogen effluvium, the growing stage slows down, meaning that fewer hairs enter the subsequent 2 stages. And around 30% of hair follicles move into the resting phase, which means that hair shedding occurs.

“The hair loss that we had seen was due to Telogen Effluvium. It is due to the infection that interrupts the hair follicle growth. Though this typically isn’t permanent”.


  1. Medication: The medicines which were used during the treatment may cause the hair fall.

  2. Body & mental Stress, phobia, Anxiety can also contribute to hair loss.

  3. Virus: It might have affected our whole body’s immune system which plays a role in hair fall.

  4. Poor diet.  For healthy hair, the important point is to include protein, iron, B-vitamins, and zinc. A shortage of these nutrients may affect the standard and quantity of hair.

  5. Lack of Vitamin D: Due to bed rest and staying in the room for weeks/ months, the lack of Vitamin D in the body & hormonal disturbance may also contribute to hair loss.
