From fatigue to shortness of breath, and then difficulty in walking, muscle aches, dizziness, asthenia, cognitive deficits, anxiety and depression are some of the Long-Covid symptoms. A year and a half after the start of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, an important number of people affected by COVID-19 presents clinical manifestations that do not end with virological recovery, but they can persist for a long time.
The Istituto Superiore di Sanità has set up a special table and estimates that the problem may affect one out of four patients: “SARS-COV 2 infection is a disease that can affect all organs and systems – says the virologist of the Polyclinic prof . Antonio Cascio – some people have no symptoms and are fine despite having the covid but in some cases the disease becomes violent and some people even have problems in the following months, due to the long covid. There are various consequences related to long covid, such as long-term asthenia, memory disorders, those who have hair loss, those who have difficulty concentrating, but also severe respiratory problems and difficulties even in walking. It is all under study, it is obvious that it would be better not to catch the disease but unfortunately we know well that this is not the case. There is one important thing to say, people who have had covid and who have had pneumonia can have serious consequences, so bad breathing, sleep apnea and major physical problems, this is the long covid. Unfortunately, these people will not recover immediately and it may take some time. However, I can reassure everyone a little because these long ailments will go away over time “.
