Even when COVID-19 cases have declined and most patients are reporting mild symptoms, the possibility of long COVID is still high. Since studies have shown that even a mild SARS-CoV-2 infection can cause long COVID, experts have warned against undermining mild symptoms and urged people to take necessary measures.
For those of you, who are still unaware of the term long COVID, it is a condition that occurs in people who have had a COVID-19 infection and continue to experience lingering symptoms long after their recovery.
Up until now, several long term symptoms have come to the fore. However, research is still ongoing and scientists continue to work towards identifying new and unusual symptoms associated with the condition, so as to develop targeted treatments.
