Long Covid

ABOUT LONG COVID or POST COVID SYNDROME

Sometimes COVID-19 symptoms can last for months, due to damage caused to lungs, heart, and the brain after first being infected with the virus that caused COVID-19.  These conditions are sometimes named “Long COVID” or “Post-COVID-19 Syndrome,” while others refer to themselves as “Long Haulers.” Regardless of the name given, take comfort knowing that help is available.  Most people with Post-COVID Syndrome or Long COVID experience the effects of COVID-19 that persist for more than four weeks after being diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus.

Studies in the U.S. estimate that up to 30 percent of COVID-19 survivors develop Long COVID-19 and experience respiratory, neurological and physical symptoms that seriously affect their quality of life.
