"Long Covid" is a consequence of Covid-19 infection, leaving many people with long-term Covid-19 symptoms. Despite a high recovery rate, many people are affected by the virus beyond the infection phase.
A new study has found a surprisingly high number of people suffering from long-haul Covid. Approximately 43% of people infected with the virus have experienced long-term side effects.
The research published in the Medrxiv preprint journal assessed the prevalence of long Covid and its most common symptoms globally.
