Conjunctivitis is an eye infection caused by a bacteria or virus. Symptoms include eye redness, a discharge and swollen lids. Also called "Pink eye" its an inflammation of the transparent membrane that lines the eyelid and eyeball. This membrane is called the conjunctiva. When small blood vessels in the conjunctiva become swollen and irritated, they're more visible. This is what causes the whites of the eyes to appear reddish or pink.
Similar to several viruses, coronaviruses can affect the eye and cause conjunctivitis as well. Conjunctivitis can be the only sign and symptom of COVID-19 in some people. The SARS-Cov-2 gains access to the host cells by binding to the angiotensin-converting enzyme II (ACE2) receptor present in various tissues. These receptors are found in the eye, specifically in the cornea, conjunctiva, ciliary body, iris, and retina. Therefore, some patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 may present with conjunctivitis before developing other symptoms. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8411033)
