Some people experience long-term effects of COVID-19, such as multiorgan effects, autoimmune conditions, fatigue, difficulty breathing, neurological symptoms, and mental health conditions.
These effects can last weeks, months, or even years after the initial infection.
Research suggests that 1 in 5 people ages 18 to 64 have at least one symptom of post-COVID-19 syndrome one month to one year after infection.
Risk factors for post-COVID-19 syndrome include severe illness, preexisting medical conditions, and organ damage.
If you are experiencing symptoms of post-COVID-19 syndrome, talk to your healthcare provider.
Some people, especially those who had severe COVID-19, experience multiorgan effects or autoimmune conditions with symptoms lasting weeks, months, or even years after COVID-19 illness. Multi-organ effects can involve many body systems, including the heart, lung, kidney, skin, and brain.
