The persistent symptoms of Covid can affect everything from the brain to the heart to the skin

A new report says that “long-term COVID-19” – or the long-term impact of a coronavirus infection – may affect infected people in four different ways.

This could explain why some people with persistent symptoms are not believed or treated.

The British National Institute for Health Research report stated that there may be a significant psychological impact on people with long-term symptoms of Covid-19.

So they need more support – and healthcare workers need better information about similar cases.

Experiments Changed toFor life

Most people have been told they will recover from a mild coronavirus infection within two weeks and from a more serious infection within three weeks.

But the report says that thousands may live with “persistent Covid”.

With the increase in coronavirus cases across the UK, this number is also likely to increase in the coming months.

Based on interviews with 14 members of a support group for people with long-term COVID-19 symptoms on and the latest published research, the new study revealed recurring symptoms that affect everything from breathing, brain, heart, and cardiovascular system to the kidneys, intestines, liver and skin.

These symptoms may be caused by four different syndromes:

  • Permanent damage to the lungs and heart
  • Post-intensive care syndrome
  • Post-viral fatigue syndrome
  • COVID-19 symptoms persist

Some of the injured remained in hospital for a long time due to their severe Covid-19 disease – but others with mild infections were not tested or diagnosed.

According to the study, reaching a “practical diagnosis of ongoing Covid-19” would help people access support.

“For some people, it has become clear that Covid-19 infection is a long-term disease,” the report says.

He added: “For some, this is related to their rehabilitation after hospitalization – but others reported life-changing experiences after suffering from an infection they treated at home, and the symptoms became more severe over time.”

The report’s author, Dr. Eileen Maxwell, said she assumed that those who had experienced severe symptoms from Covid-19 would be affected more and that people who had fewer effects were also exposed to fewer effects, but in the long term.

But the study revealed the opposite. “We know now that there are people without a record of Covid infection who suffer more than one person who has been put on a ventilator for several weeks,” said Dr. Maxwell.

These debilitating effects on some people can be a “significant burden on the NHS”.

Joe House and her partner Ashe have persistent symptoms

Joe House, a lecturer at the University of Bristol, has not returned to work more than six months after her injury.

It started with a severe cough and difficulty breathing, but then it turned into severe fatigue and headache, before heart problems and muscle pain began.

“That day, I woke up, got very dizzy, and fainted and ended up in the emergency room,” she said.

Although her rapid pulse and shortness of breath improved slightly, her persistent symptoms still had a major impact on her and her family’s life.

Her partner Ashe also has symptoms that haven’t gone away. As a result, her teenage children had to do all the cooking and cleaning work.

“A lot of people are classified as having mild symptoms, but they are not really mild at all. We need support,” she says.

Although Joe had pneumonia, she was never tested to see if she had the virus and had not been hospitalized.

“We both gave his will when we were very sick,” she said. “It was scary.”

The report calls for support in the community in addition to the recently announced comprehensive hospital clinics for those suffering from long-term symptoms of Covid.

He adds that it is possible that the ongoing Covid, has a disproportionate effect on certain groups, such as blacks or Asians as well as those with mental health problems or learning difficulties.

“Our goal is for healthcare services and their employees to use this review to better understand the experiences that patients can deal with, and to provide them with access to the treatment, care and support they need,” said Dr. Maxwell.
