LONG-TERM EFFECTS
OF CORONAVIRUS
(LONG COVID)

Long-term effects
of coronavirus
(Long COVID)

Coronavirus (COVID-19) can leave some people with symptoms that continue for weeks or months after the infection has passed. This is also known as “Long COVID” or “post-COVID-19 syndrome.”

Supporting your
long covid recovery

You may still be coming to terms with the impact COVID-19 has had on both your body and mind while you heal from the virus. These changes should improve with time, but some may take longer than others. However, there are things you can do to help aid and speed up your recovery.
What is Long COVID?
The majority of COVID infections clear up within the first four weeks. “Long COVID” is a colloquial phrase for signs and symptoms that persist or worsen following a COVID infection. It can be one of two things, depending on how long you’ve been experiencing symptoms:

 

Ongoing symptomatic COVID – If your symptoms last longer than four weeks, you’ve reached this stage. If your symptoms linger longer than 12 weeks, you will be diagnosed with;

 

Post-COVID Syndrome – When your symptoms last longer than 12 weeks and can’t be explained by anything else, you’ve reached this stage.
What are Long Covid Symptoms?
Long Covid symptoms can be complex and diverse, and they can change over time. Among the most commonly reported symptoms to include (but are not limited to):

 

Respiratory & Cardiovascular symptomsBreathlessness | Cough | Chest tightness | Chest pain | Palpitations

 

Generalised symptomsFatigue | Fever | Pain

 

Neurological symptomsCognitive impairment (‘brain fog’, loss of concentration or memory issues) | Headache | Sleep disturbance | Pins and needles or numbness | Dizziness | Delirium (in older people)

 

Gastrointestinal symptoms (digestive system) – Abdominal pain | Nausea | Diarrhoea | Anorexia and reduced appetite (in older people) | Weight loss

 

Musculoskeletal symptoms – Joint pain | Muscle pain

 

Psychological/psychiatric symptoms – Symptoms of depression | Symptoms of anxiety

 

Ear, nose and throat symptoms – Tinnitus | Earache | Sore throat | Loss of taste and/or smell

 

Dermatological symptoms – Skin rashes
Clinicians and researchers from all over the world are trying to figure out what happens to people as they recover. They’re also attempting to figure out if there are any long-term complications. They’re trying to figure out which treatments work and how to prevent sickness in the future. You may be requested to participate in studies during your recovery.

 

We don’t know exactly what will happen to people as they recover at the time of writing, but there is a lot of information to help assist us. We’re drawing on data from countries whose disease peaks were earlier than in the UK. We’re also drawing on experience with other types of pneumonia recovery.

 

Some people with COVID will be able to manage their symptoms at home, while others will need to go to the hospital. Individuals with severe COVID disease require a high amount of respiratory care while in the hospital. It’s possible that people who needed a lot of supplemental oxygen or a bedside machine to help them breathe were able to breathe on their own.

The acute disease causes a variety of symptoms. Coughs, fevers, muscle aches, and lethargy (tiredness/exhaustion) are all common symptoms. Some people became short of breath. We are aware that symptoms such as loss of taste and smell were prevalent. Other viruses cause fewer of the later symptoms.

 

Many individuals will recover completely. It could take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Cough, shortness of breath, poor or limited sleep, fatigue, anxiety, and low mood are all expected to persist in some persons.

 

The recovery time is different for everyone. The length of your recovery is not necessarily related to the severity of your initial illness or whether you were in the hospital. If new or ongoing symptoms do occur and they are causing you concern, you should always seek medical advice and support.
