LONG COVID: WHY IS THE DIAGNOSIS OF SARS-COV-2 STILL IMPORTANT?

Cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection are increasing significantly in Spain, as they are also growing in the rest of the world. And while it is true that the symptoms are not as aggressive as they were at the beginning of the pandemic and that the vast majority of the population recovers completely after infection, it is also true that between 10 and 20% of cases have symptoms that last for weeks or even months, according to World Health Organisation estimations. This is known as persistent COVID or long COVID, whose symptoms may appear within three months of the onset of infection and may last for at least two months. Even in the worst cases, it can become chronic.

These symptoms of a physical, but also mental and/or psychological nature can significantly compromise the daily life of patients, both at work and at family and social level.

Here at OPERON, we have two colleagues who have suffered from the disease and are willing to share their experience.
