The Shocking Coronavirus Symptoms That Could Last for Years

Scientists are learning more about the novel coronavirus by the day, and just how complicated it can be. In recent weeks, they discovered that what first appeared to be a respiratory disease can actually affect a range of body parts, from the kidneys to the toes. Their latest discovery is that some symptoms could last for months and months, leaving some survivors with a long road to complete recovery.

COVID-19 sufferers have reported symptoms like:

  • Breathlessness
  • Fatigue
  • and body pain

months after their initial infection, and Bloomberg reports that small studies in China have found  that survivors are dealing with reduced function in the:

  • Lungs
  • Heart
  • And liver.

The novel coronavirus is destructive in itself, but in some people, the immune system goes into overdrive in an attempt to fight it off. Scientists believe this may compound the damage caused by virus and contribute to chronic physical problems.

The understanding of COVID-19 is still in its infancy, but scientists think its lasting effects could be similar to another respiratory virus, SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). Although only 800 people died in a 2003 outbreak in Asia, one study found that survivors suffered a range of health issues, including lung infections, high blood cholesterol levels and a seemingly lowered immune system, more than a decade after their initial infection.

“These data demonstrated that the recovered SARS patients had a poor quality of life 12 years following recovery, and were susceptible to inflammation, tumors, and glucose and lipid metabolic disorders,” wrote the authors of that 2017 study.

The prospect that COVID-19 could cause lasting damage led the doctor who treated British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to recently call the illness “this generation’s polio.” That will create serious challenges for the medical field.

“What these chronic issues ultimately look like—and how many patients ultimately experience them—will have huge implications for patients, the doctors who treat them, and the health systems around them,” said Kimberly Powers, an epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Months into the outbreak, researchers and doctors are still grasping for effective treatments for COVID-19. Although the early statistics about severity still seem to be holding—about 80 percent of people infected with coronavirus will develop mild or no symptoms—but for the remainder who need medical intervention, there is still no official first-line treatment. After initial clinical trials of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine turned out to be no silver bullet, this month the FDA approved emergency use of the antiviral drug remdesivir following slightly more promising studies on its effectiveness.

  1. The Truth is beginning to come out , We know that Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama Sobarkah directed the NIH in 2015 to give the Communist Chinese 3.7 million dollars ( American Tax Payer ) to fund their biological weapons Lab in Wuhan , Several reliable sources also place Dr. Fauci in the middle of this , Dr. Birx had to have known at the very least , No One Knows how much money the other Villains gave to the Communist Chinese to cook up this Virus , But it is a fairly short list , Hillary Clinton , George Soros , Bill Gates all funded the Biological Weapons Lab in Wuhan , That is the reason I say the Communist Chinese Democrat Virus , Other aspects and Theories have not been proven , At least three Theories exist that the Virus was either stolen or given to the Wuhan Germ Kitchen , Also some evidence exists that Dr.Fauci was in Wuhan China in 2014 , What I get from this is that the Globalists /Communists have been working on this scheme for some time , Try to imagine if the Evil Marxist Witch Hillary currently occupied the White House , The Constitution would have been suspended , Martial Law would have been declared and We would be at War , Which has been the Marxist Agenda for nearly 100 years , We are very close to their endgame fellow Americans

    • You must be a TRUMP supporter trying to get the blame off that Hitler,White Supremacists,want to be Communist. DictatorTrump.He is always trying to put the blame on others.What did he know and when did he know it? American leaders have always try to help and assist other countries(Vietnam, Arab countries etc.) in peace time and in wars time with money,education,etc. Even if the virus originated in China, at least their leader try to make sure that the people had mask and enforce isolation to weaken the virus. How dare he not let Americans get off the ship! How dare he not give first responders (Doctors-Nurses-EMT-Scientist-Lab Tech etc,) the supplies they need to care for the patient .They are the ones up close and personal .They CAN NOT distance themselves 3 and 6 feet away.They need the best mask to filter out MICROS that are under PM 0.3.Viruses and other elements PM range from 0.5 to 0.3 and can pass through the PM 2.5.They are the ones who need tons of gowns and gloves to change and protect themselves and the patients.As for the rest of us PM 2.5 mask , distancing , washing hands , staying at home to help Doctors, Nurses and patients ,etc is ok. I’m 1000% percent Mrs.Clinton or President Obama would have done a better job working with this situation we are in. This is the UNITED STATES and not the Trillnomic States.
