Description:

While the world battles against coronavirus, scientists have discovered that people hospitalized with COVID-19 infection can experience long term symptoms. These sets of symptoms include fatigue, confusion, breathlessness, and a general decline in the quality of life. One of the scientists on the research team is of Indian origin and the study has been published in the journal of Medical Virology.

The study also reveals that the patients in the Intensive care unit experience severe post-traumatic stress disorder. Manoj Sivan, Associate Clinical Professor, University of Leeds, UK, says, “COVID-19 is a new illness and we have very little information on longer-term problems in individuals after discharging from the hospital.”
