Description:

Nine months into the pandemic, it’s become clear that the effects of the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 can last beyond the acute illness. Among COVID-19 patients 18 to 35 years old who were previously in good health, as many as 20% experience prolonged symptoms, according to the World Health Organization. Complaints among so-called long-haulers include fatigue, shortness of breath, “brain fog” and depression. For patients whose illnesses required ICU care, post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) is an ongoing concern, particularly for those who experienced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
