Germany: SARS-CoV-2 remains in the body for over 7 months

Coronavirus RNA can remain in many areas of the human body, including the brain, for 230 days after the first symptoms, scientists say.

Scientists at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), the leading US health research agency, believe that SARS-CoV-2 RNA can persist in many areas of the human body, including brain regions, for 230 days after symptoms first appear. infection, says DW. This is stated in a study in which 44 autopsies were carried out on the bodies of patients with COVID-19, who suffered from this disease to varying degrees during their lifetime. The preprint – excerpts from the article – is pending in the journal Nature. Bloomberg also posted a link to it on December 27.

“We have demonstrated that SARS-CoV-2 is widespread in even those patients who have died with asymptomatic or mild COVID-19, and that viral replication is present in many extrapulmonary tissues in the early stages of infection,” the researchers noted. “Despite the widespread occurrence of SARS-CoV-2 in the body, inflammation or direct viral cytopathology outside the lungs” were mild, the scientists said. “Our data proves that SARS-CoV-2 causes a systemic infection and can remain in the body for several months,” they stated.

Experts added that some patients who have had a severe form of COVID-19 subsequently suffer from “lingering covid”, in which the effects on the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems of the body are felt for a long time. The study has not yet passed the peer review procedure.

Earlier it became known that the so-called postcoid syndrome is detected in about 10-15 percent of those infected with coronavirus. The risk of its occurrence, according to experts, is higher in women and elderly people.

Scientists from King’s College London have collected data from about 1.2 million smartphone users. Participants entered into the app information about when they received the vaccine, whether they contracted the coronavirus after that, and how long they had post-hoc symptoms. According to the researchers, among the vaccinated, the number of patients with “lingering covid” was half that of the unvaccinated.
