Long-term consequences of contracting COVID-19, a year later
The long-term health consequences of COVID-19 remain largely unclear.
Studies have found that there are long-term effects of contracting the virus like brain fogs, shortness of breath and fatigue.
Speaking to Refiloe Mpakanyane Proactive Health Solutions CEO Dr Fundile Nyathi says a study from Wuhan has recently looked at the long-term effects of the virus a year later.
The study is telling us that many people that recovered from COVID-19 continue to have symptoms or even complications relating to the virus. And some people, a year later are still not functional and other have lost their jobs due to the virus.Dr Fundile Nyathi, CEO - Proactive Health Solutions
