Half of the people infected with COVID-19 will suffer from long haul COVID symptoms

Researchers reveal that it’s more than just a handful of people who end up on long COVID-19 symptoms; it’s more than half.

A total of 57 studies involving 250,000 children and adults that had COVID between Dec. 2019 and March 2921 showed 50% of them had long term symptoms from the virus.

Patients in the studies were monitored one month, 2-5 months, and six or more months after their recovery.

Another study referenced by the Deseret News said 45% of COVID survivors in Wuhan, China suffered from at least one lingering symptom a year after their release from the hospital.

Experts say mental health issues are another lingering symptom, and a person’s battle isn’t done with survival from the virus.
