One great thing modern medicine has given us is the ability to study and record the effects of different diseases in human beings. For the most part, doctors can tell patients what to expect and how to take care of themselves after a new diagnosis, whether it’s a viral infection or an autoimmune disease. But the coronavirus is a brand-new pathogen, and everyone has a lot of questions about it.

As 2020 drags on, experts are learning more about the way COVID-19 affects people – both in the first few weeks and months after their initial diagnosis.
