Czech doctors see spike in stomach, gall bladder and liver problems

Doctors in the Czech Republic have noticed an increase in patients with stomach, gall bladder and liver problem. The spike likely stems from people getting less exercise, consuming more food and alcohol, and getting fewer check-ups due to anti-coronavirus restrictions.

Doctors from the General University Hospital (VFN) and the Medical Faculty of Charles University in Prague said that this April and May alone, they recorded twice as many hospitalizations for gallstone complications and 50 percent more endoscopic procedures than in the previous year.
