Doctor talks about common sequelae in healed Covid-19 patients


The characteristic signs of infection with the new coronavirus are known to most of the population. Symptoms such as fever, dry cough, diarrhea and shortness of breath are associated with COVID-19.

However, the disease still has some aspects unknown. One of them is the impact suffered by the organism during recovery.

According to the assistant state secretary of health and infectious disease physician Alexandre Salomão, many patients have had persistent characteristics or sequelae.

?? This set of sequelae has been called post-covid syndrome, pulmonary manifestations are very common, and we have seen in clinical practice the great need for physical therapists for pulmonary monitoring for full recovery ?? explains.

She noticed the condition getting worse and when she returned to the hospital, she was barely able to walk. Among the symptoms that persisted are intense headache, constant tiredness, diarrhea and headaches.

?? In my case after two months I came back to feel all the symptoms again, I got a psychological shock and I’m afraid of having a post-traumatic anxiety crisis he explained.

Journalist Vanessa Fernandes said she felt the first symptoms about two weeks before she was diagnosed. ?? After isolation and recovery, the constipation persists, I had no breathing problems or loss of smell, but I noticed a certain mental confusion, when I forget simple everyday things ?? said.

Covid Post-19

A report published by the World Health Organization (WHO), based on preliminary data, suggests that, in mild cases, the average recovery time for Covid-19 is approximately two weeks after the onset of symptoms and, in severe cases, three to six weeks. However, some of those who appeared to have only a mild illness initially end up evolving to post-Covid-19 syndrome.

The post-Covid-19 syndrome can be disabling, impairing the performance of simple daily activities, with disproportionate tiredness and lack of energy, and compromising the routine with the family, at work and at leisure.
