Long covid

Issue

Post recovery symptoms of covid such as body ache, fever, brain fog, cough, chronic fatigue etc have been observed in patients who did not require hospitalisation.

 

Details

  • People who have not taken either of vaccine shots cannot be vaccinated for about 6-8 weeks if they are infected.

  • The symptoms of post covid last for about 4-12 weeks. Patients feel they have been re-infected because of these symptoms.

 

Reason for Long Covid

  • Coronavirus that causes covid-19 not just infects lungs but its effects can be felt over various other parts including kidney, liver, heart, nervous system etc. The effects are more deadly in people with co-morbidities.

  • The person-to-person effects of the disease are different due to variations in organ functions, immune system and lifestyle.

  • It may take the body time to recover from the effects of the infection, which leads to the covid-like symptoms.

 

Tackling long covid

  • People need to follow an active lifestyle that includes physical exercises. Vaccination could reduce symptoms but should only be administered after 6-8 weeks of recovery.

  • Short walks and breathing exercises can increase the physical capacity of the body and also breathing capacity of lungs.

  • There is also a need to eat right through consumption of fruits, green vegetables, and healthy food instead of junk food.
