A study in South Korea shows that getting out of infection with the new coronavirus does not guarantee immediate health recovery.
Nine out of 10 patients in the survey reported suffering from some persistent side effect of the disease, according to the Korean Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA).
Preliminary results were released on Tuesday (9/29) in a report by the Reuters agency. The full study, in more detail, is expected to be published soon, according to Kim Shin-woo, professor at the Kyungpook National University School of Medicine in Daegu.
Through an online questionnaire, 879 of the 965 participants responded that they were suffering from some side effect of the disease. The most common was fatigue, reported by 26.2% of respondents. As a result, difficulties in concentration appeared (24.6%), psychological or mental damage and loss of taste or smell.
