According to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one-third of coronavirus patients have symptoms that do not go away.
The report – focusing on patients who were not hospitalized with coronovirus – found that patients experienced symptoms weeks and months after the first positive test.
- Patients with COVID-19 did not return to their regular level of health within two to three weeks of diagnosis.
- In fact, 1 in 5 patients have not returned to normal health.
- Symptoms of sexism included fatigue, cough, congestion, indigestion, loss of taste and smell, chest pain, and confusion. Other symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, fever and chills did not last long.
“COVID-19 can also result in chronic disease among young adults without chronic disease. The CDC stated that effective public health messages targeting these groups are broadcast.
As I wrote for Deseret.com, the CDC stated earlier this month that COVID-19 was often one of three major symptoms in patients – fever, cough, and shortness of breath. The CDC published the results last week. The report found that 96% of the patients had fever, cough or shortness of breath from coronovirus. About half – 45% – experienced three of all those symptoms.
