Are you experiencing symptoms of Long COVID? / Post COVID-19?
Long COVID, also known as post COVID-19 condition, is a condition where COVID-19 symptoms persist for at least three months after the initial illness, with no known connection to other medical issues. These ongoing symptoms often disrupt daily life and may change over time.
Common symptoms of Long COVID include enduring fatigue, persistent shortness of breath, and cognitive difficulties, among others. These symptoms can significantly affect your ability to carry out everyday activities and may resemble those of other health conditions, such as issues with your lungs or heart. We encourage you to discuss your symptoms with your healthcare provider.
