Long Covid: 20% of adult patients are left with sequelae, says CDC

One in five American adults who have been infected with the coronavirus suffer from symptoms of long-term Covid, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), published this Wednesday (22/6).

Data was collected between June 1 and June 13 by the US Census Bureau and then analyzed by the CDC. Young adults were more likely to report persistent symptoms compared to older adults.


Patients have reported symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, cognitive problems, chronic pain, sensory changes and muscle weakness, which can be strenuous and last for weeks or months after they recover from the infection. (With information from Reuters)
