Thousands of people could live with “Long Covid,” the long-lasting effect of Covid-19 infection that affects people in four different ways and could have a significant psychological and social impact on those who live with it. The UK National Institute for Health Research says.
The review found that people suffer from a variety of symptoms, including those affecting mental health and fatigue, the brain, breathing, the cardiovascular system, skin, and liver.
The researchers say there could be four different syndromes that could be responsible for the symptoms: post-intensive syndrome, post-viral fatigue syndrome, long-term Covid symptoms, and damage to the lungs and heart.
Statements from patients show that Covid-19 is a “cyclical illness” in which symptoms move around the body and severity fluctuates over time.
An emphasis on acute Covid-19 symptoms, particularly breathing problems, has created difficulties for patients receiving treatment or recognition for “long Covid,” the researchers say.
The research is said to be “dynamic” and will be updated as more information and evidence on “Long Covid” is received.
While most people are told that they will recover from Covid-19 infections in a few weeks, there are increasing reports of people facing a disease with a much longer course. Relatively little is known about the long-term consequences of Covid-19 infection, and it may take years after the pandemic to take full effect.
“The acute illness caused by the virus was investigated early, but it is becoming clear that the Covid-19 infection is a long-term illness for some people,” the report said.
