The expert noted that indicators from 35.7 to 36.9 degrees can be considered normal, the temperature can fluctuate during the day. However, if the thermometer reads a lower reading, it could indicate hypothermia. It is better to repeat the measurement several times with a mercury thermometer. If the situation does not change, it is advisable to seek the advice of a specialist. Hypothermia develops after a viral illness or as a result of stroke and anesthesia. With the coronavirus, the low temperature is rather abnormal, writes Nation News.
Sometimes the temperature drops with anemia, certain bacterial infections, or even Parkinson's disease. In some cases, the symptom gives out oncology or a failure of blood circulation in the brain. It also happens that a decrease in temperature is due to taking medications.
