People With Five Or More Symptoms are at Higher Risk For Developing Long-COVID, Says Study
Nearly 1 in 4 patients can continue to have lingering side-effects post recovery from novel coronavirus, which can be mild, moderate in nature or severe neurological deficits.A study by King’s College, London found that people who had five or more symptoms in the first week of COVID infection were at a higher risk of developing long-term COVID.The research¬† also showed being female, excess weight and asthma raised the risk.It has also been observed that men were at much more risk of very severe disease and sadly of dying from Covid while women are more at risk of long Covid.
Post-COVID symptoms can range from a lingering cough, breathlessness, muscle pain, brain fog and chronic fatigue.Fatigue and exhaustion were two of the most common chronic symptoms.Instead of rushing back to normalcy and risk overstraining yourself, for the first few weeks of recovery, try and limit your activities which tend to tire you. It’s important to resume life, but do not push yourself too hard.Do yoga and breathing exercise.

face coverings (nose &mouth) should be part of new normal.
Smoking in any form at this time should be banned in public places as it may increase the spread of virus
Teamwork and feeling of openness is important for winning this Corona war.
