There are still many unknowns with this new, novel cornonavirus SARS-CoV-2. The volume of information and research out there is vast, thus, this page is not meant to be comprehensive. However, we provide a collection here for thinking critically about the issues we are facing, and examining them through an evidence based lens. We hope to picque your investigative nature into wanting to know more. The more we know, the more we can make decisions that are proactive rather than reactive.
From ‘brain fog’ to heart damage, COVID-19’s lingering problems alarm scientists
The American Assorication for the Advancement of Science
The likelihood of a patient developing persistent symptoms is hard to pin down because different studies track different outcomes and follow survivors for different lengths of time. One group in Italy found that 87% of a patient cohort hospitalized for acute COVID-19 was still struggling 2 months later. Data from the COVID Symptom Study, which uses an app into which millions of people in the United States, United Kingdom, and Sweden have tapped their symptoms, suggest 10% to 15% of people—including some “mild” cases—don’t quickly recover. But with the crisis just months old, no one knows how far into the future symptoms will endure, and whether COVID-19 will prompt the onset of chronic diseases.
