The corona plague is almost completely behind us, after yesterday (Tuesday) Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz announced the abolition of the obligation to wear masks on international flights and PCR tests at the entrance to Israel. And yet, many of us have been infected with the virus at least once and experienced the symptoms that accompany it.
Now, a new study reveals that at least half of corona patients experience persistent symptoms of the virus – up to two years after being infected. According to the details of the study, published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine and conducted in the UK, evidence has been shown that some of the symptoms felt while the virus was in your body had a long-term effect on various organs in the body.
“Regardless of the severity of the initial disease, corona recoverers were found to have symptoms that affected their physical and mental health, with most recovering after about two years,” the study said. “The study findings suggest that there is an urgent need to investigate the long-term pathogenesis of corona and to develop drugs or treatments that will reduce the risk of side effects remaining after the virus leaves the body.”
The study author explained that the average recovery from virus symptoms is between five months and a year. According to one participant, Christopher Breitling of the University of Leicester, without effective treatment the ongoing corona effects could become a new health condition that would become very common.
The main symptoms found in the bodies of corona recoverers are:
Shortness of breath
If you have had corona in the past, and you feel that one of the symptoms has not completely passed and is affecting your daily functioning, know that you are not alone. It is worth contacting the family doctor and asking for targeted treatment or advice for the problem you are suffering from, but do not forget – within two years this roof will pass.
