Long Covid effects “may include weariness, shortness of breath, headache, brain fog, muscle or joint pain, chest pain, coughing, diarrhoea, loss of sense of smell and taste, depression, and sleeplessness,” according to a Facebook post by Dr. Yong Poovorawan.

Patients with the Omicron variation of Covid-19 as opposed to the Delta variant exhibited noticeably fewer Long Covid symptoms, according to a new study published in the Lancet. Furthermore, it was found that Long Covid patients will gradually get better over time.
People shouldn’t be alarmed by the rise of Long Covid patients, said Yong. He said, alluding to the fact that the Covid-19 virus has impacted several million individuals globally, “It is only normal to see many of those who have recovered enduring these persistent symptoms.”

He asserts that it is not rare for people with many other disorders to continue to suffer these symptoms after they have recovered. Long Covid symptoms, according to Yong, present more cognitively than physically in persons who have recovered from severe Covid-19 symptoms. Additionally, elderly, unvaccinated persons are more vulnerable to Long Covid than are younger, protected individuals.

Additionally, getting vaccinated and seeking medical attention immediately after a test that comes back positive can help lower the risk of Long Covid.

According to a well-known virologist, Long Covid sufferers will eventually get better and the public shouldn’t panic over reports that the disease is becoming more common.
