So-called ‘long haul’ COVID-19 is very real, according to a new study out of Oxford University.
Researchers found that roughly 1/3rd of COVID-19 survivors experienced ‘long haul’ effects – with at least one symptom persisting for 3-6 months after infection. Some report symptoms lasting for a year or longer.
‘Long haul’ symptoms can include fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain, and ‘brain fog’. And experts still don’t know how long they could potentially last.
Do you know anyone who suffered ‘long haul’ COVID-19 effects? How long did they persist?
