50% of survivors still have persistent symptoms after 2 years

UA new study published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine has found evidence that a considerable proportion of people who have recovered from Covid-19 have at least one main persistent symptom, up to two years after being infected.

The researchers found that the predominant symptoms included long-term effects on various organs of the body.

Although most Covid-19 survivors had returned to work since becoming ill, half still suffered from fatigue, the follow-up study found.

“Regardless of the initial severity of illness, Covid-19 survivors showed longitudinal improvements in physical and mental health, with the majority returning to their original work within two years; however, the burden of symptomatic sequelae remained quite high.” read in the study.

“Covid-19 survivors were in notably more deteriorated health than the general population after two years.”

“The results of the study indicate that there is an urgent need to explore the pathogenesis of long-term Covid and develop effective interventions to reduce the risk of the condition.”

Study co-author Rachel Evans of the National Institute of Health and Care Research explained, “The limited recovery from five months to one year after hospitalization in terms of mental health, physical ability, organ impairment and quality of life is impressive.”

“Without effective treatments, long-term Covid can become a new, highly prevalent, long-lasting condition,” warned co-author Christopher Brightling of the University of Leicester.

The most common symptoms of Covid-19 include: fatigue, muscle pain, sleep disturbances, decreased physical performance and shortness of breath.
