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.

These findings are worrying as it means that people's quality of life and their ability to earn a living have been compromised.
