Symptoms Of COVID-19 Can Be Observed Within Six Months From The Moment Of Infection
Long-term symptoms of COVID-19, including cough, shortness of breath, constant fatigue, dizziness, and insomnia, can be observed for six months after infection, according to Singapore scientists from the National Center for Infectious Diseases, whose research data was published on Saturday in The Straits Times newspaper.
According to experts, "an important point is the fact that such prolonged symptoms can be observed regardless of the severity of the course" of the disease. Scientists believe that "proteins formed in the blood are responsible for this condition. In addition, they can lead to the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases."
"The study showed that, in addition to the lungs, which are affected by the virus in the first place, other organs also receive significant damage," said Barnaby Young, an expert at the national center, one of the authors of the study. According to him, "some patients suffer from blood vessels, including small ones present in each organ, which threatens to block the general blood supply system."
According to a study conducted in January last year, ethnic Chinese over 65 years of age were the least susceptible to post-ovoid syndrome. However, scientists can not yet explain this. Meanwhile, experts noted that lingering symptoms were observed in Singapore every tenth.
