A new study has revealed nine core ‘long COVID’ symptoms that continue or develop after acute COVID-19.
Accordingly, these symptoms could be occurred 90-180 days after COVID-19 was diagnosed.
The symptoms were more frequent in those who had been hospitalised, and they were slightly more common in women.
This includes both ongoing symptomatic COVID-19 (from 4 to 12 weeks) and post-COVID-19 syndrome (≥12 weeks).
Furthermore, the symptoms include abnormal breathing (8%), abdominal symptoms (8%), anxiety/depression (15%), chest/throat pain (6%), cognitive problems (4%), fatigue (6%), headache (5%), myalgia (muscle pain) (1.5%) and other pain (7%).
