Description:

Health experts are warning about a variety of possible coronavirus after effects — from long-term respiratory ailments to blood clotting to brain damage.

Even though most people experience only moderate symptoms, severe complications of the disease could lead to long-term effects, experts say.

“COVID-19 is not always a benign illness and there are lingering effects that may affect you even if you do not require hospitalization. This is something that people should avoid getting and spreading — we can’t take it lightly,” said Dr. Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. COVID-19 symptoms include fever or chills, cough, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose or congestion, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.
