Description:

Since mid-March, more than 3,800 Hoosiers who tested positive for COVID-19 have died. More than half of those deaths were patients age 80 or older.

In Monroe County, all 38 COVID-19-related deaths have been in patients age 50 or older. Younger patients, though less likely to die after suffering from COVID-19, may face continuing symptoms even several months after diagnoses. Those include fatigue, weakness, cognitive impairment and difficulty breathing, among other lingering effects.

In many online support groups, individuals with confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 have connected to discuss their continued illness. Lingering symptoms of COVID-19 have been given various nicknames, including “Long COVID” and “Slowvid.” Doctors aren’t yet sure how long the effects can last, or what lasting damage may be done to the body.
