Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS)
Most Covid-19 patients have no symptoms or experience only mild to moderate symptoms.
Two-thirds of sufferers do not have any symptoms at all (asymptomatic), while 90% are symptom-free three weeks after their symptoms first appear.
However, the remainder experience either persistent symptoms or a pattern of symptoms improving, then reappearing (relapsing and remitting).
Recovery from Covid-19 typically takes two to six weeks after the onset of symptoms.
The term post-Covid-19 syndrome is used for clinical features that develop during or after an infection consistent with Covid-19, and continue for more than 12 weeks without an alternative diagnosis.
