WhatsApp stop working phones list unveiled: find out if your phone is among them: It is possible that WhatsApp will stop working on your mobile phone in the coming months, specifically from the beginning of 2021.

This is because the IM app is updated and adds new features periodically, causing older devices to fail to meet the requirements to be compatible with their use.

Among the new tools that will incorporate WhatsApp highlights the option of being able to use the app simultaneously on several devices at the same time; this update is in the trial phase and will link the account to 4 devices at once.

It will also improve the encryption security of the application, and there will be the option that sent messages are deleted at a specific time, depending on the configuration you have chosen.

This type of new tools are the ones that will cause WhatsApp to stop being compatible on various models of mobile phones, and this time they do not even free iPhone and Android.

To check if your mobile phone is going to stop working WhatsApp you have to go to the official FAQ section of the application, which is regularly updated to solve the doubts of users. In it you can find which phones will be affected in the coming months.

A 45-year-old British COVID-19 patient now suffers permanent hearing loss

A 45-year-old British man lost his hearing after passing COVID-19, becoming the first reported case of its kind in the country, according to a new case study in BMJ Case Reports.

The man, whose only underlying condition was asthma, experienced sudden onset neurosensory hearing loss( SSNHL), or mild to severe hearing loss over a three-day period due to inner ear damage.

According to the doctors who wrote the case report, only five other cases of permanent hearing loss related to COVID-19 have been reported, and this was the first case in the UK.

After having symptoms of COVID - 19 for 10 days, including shortness of breath, the man went to the hospital where he was admitted to the intensive care unit and was put on a respirator.

He remained on the respirator for 30 days, the doctors write, and during that time he developed pneumonia, blood clots in the lungs, hypertension and anemia.

Doctors gave him remdesivir, steroids and plasma to treat him, and he began to feel better. But a week after he stopped using the fan, the man noticed that he could not hear most of the sounds in both ears, something he had never experienced before.

The man told the doctors that he had never had hearing problems before, and when the doctors checked his ears, they saw no signs of inflammation or infection.

However, after completing the hearing tests, they found that the man had mild hearing loss.

He was given steroids for seven days. Later, his hearing improved at certain frequencies, but he has not fully recovered.

Although doctors can't say for sure whether the coronavirus caused the man's permanent hearing loss, they thought it might be related.

Doctors suggest that medical professionals test for hearing loss in COVID-19 patients to " avoid losing the treatment window."
