Coronavirus: 28 symptoms of long COVID identified; here’s what we know

With an increase in the number of coronavirus cases, there has been a considerable jump in the number of recovered patients too. However, one of the major concerns linked to COVID-19 in recent times is the long term effects of the virus that the COVID survivors have to experience.

While even mild cases of COVID-19 can result in high fever, severe headaches, fatigue and many other complications, patients who have recovered from the coronavirus also continue experiencing lingering symptoms for a long period of time. Recently, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) identified and published 28 symptoms of long COVID in their guidelines.

What is a post-COVID syndrome?

Post-COVID syndrome is the state of experiencing COVID complications even after having tested negative for the virus. During this period, one can go from experiencing similar and most common symptoms of the novel coronavirus to facing no issues at all. That said, considering COVID-19 is a long process that initially goes from mild to severe symptoms, the post-COVID syndrome has become a grave issue in recent times.

How long does it last?

As per the data provided by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), one in five people have coronavirus symptoms for five weeks or more. Another report published by ONS states that one in 10 have coronavirus symptoms that persist for 12 weeks or longer.

Unveiled: 28 symptoms of long COVID, as per NICE guidelines

While many studies and researches on post-COVID syndrome have already been published, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has announced their own set of guidelines for the same. As on December 18, it listed down the number of symptoms associated with long COVID. However, they have not limited the symptoms to the ones they mentioned.
