Dublin scientists at Trinity College have found that people who are not working in the office due to the coronavirus pandemic have a strange symptom.
Employees of various companies who send people to work remotely during a pandemic may experience a sore throat while working at home.
The research results were published in the Journal of Voice. Experts write that frequent calls in online conferences are the cause of the unusual symptom.
It turned out that many people, in order to be heard better in chat, often raise their voice, and as a result, they have problems due to overstrain of their vocal cords.
The study involved 1575 people, of whom 516 “remote workers” told about the problem, and 85% of people from this group stated that they had not had any pain for this reason before.
