Many people who contracted Covid-19 complications back in March-April have still not fully recovered. Almost a quarter year has passed still they face post-infection problems. Back in spring, hardly anyone was thinking about the long-term health effects especially not for young patients who had mild symptoms of the virus. The number of patients that are seeking help for complete recovery shows that the virus is much more complicated.
The most important factor is that doctors too are in a learning process when it comes to this particular virus. Thanks to the huge amount of data that comes, learning at a very rapid pace is possible. But still, this is such a huge process and complicated process.
The problem with such a high acquisition of data is – reliability. A lot of data needs to be checked. As this virus is particularly new doctors don’t have a particular treatment strategy because of a lack of experience to draw on. Also, unlike any other infection, there are no treatment approaches known to the doctors for this virus.
But now because of a lot of data analysis and research, the doctors know that COVID-19 affects multiple organs. From lung problems to hair loss to sleep disorders, fatigue, and neurological disorders. They have observed a multitude of problems and the most worrying thing is, this list is growing! At the very start of the outbreak, no one had expected such a variety of issues.
The ones who had contracted the virus still face difficulty in breathing. According to doctors, former patients still face difficulty while performing laborious activities. They find that their stamina has considerably decreased in activities like running, sports, etc. This decrease in stamina indicates that their lungs haven’t still restored to pre-virus conditions.
So to conclude, COVID-19 is not just about fourteen days. The fourteen days are for the person to recover from the virus but the repercussions can be felt by a person for quite some time. Thus, better be safe than sorry!
