According to WebMD, one of the complications brought about by COVID-19 is gastrointestinal complications.
When the virus infects the body, it can destroy healthy cells. It makes copies of itself in the body, and would start attacking the cells.
The researchers said that SARS-CoV-2 virus can harm the digestive tract. It can even harm the liver tissue.
The most common symptom is lack of appetite. Next is the loss of taste and smell. Approximately 13% of those who were infected experienced having diarrhea.
Josefa, the comedienne's stepmother, also talked to GMA News and confirmed the death of Mahal; however, she did not give more details as she said that the pain is still too much.
Previously, Donita Nose and Super Tekla have recently collaborated with Mygz Molino and Mahal. For their collaboration, Donekla took on the 'Sagot o Lagot' challenge with Mahal and Mygz. At one point during the video, Donita and Mygz excused themselves as the latter wanted to change his top. This prompted Mahal to question the two why they took so long, eventually admitting she got jealous.
Her partner on YouTube, Mygz Molino, has not yet revealed any reaction to her death. The last vlog that they did together has gone viral. They also have a compilation of TikTok videos, which showed how truly good Mahal is when it comes to bringing a smile to other people's faces.
