4. Shortness of breath
Shortness of breath is one of the more well-known symptoms of the virus. Many people who have had corona suffer from shortness of breath for months. How long exactly you can suffer from this symptom has not been determined yet and it probably has to do with prolonged inflammation in the lungs. What is clear, however, is that it is one of the most persistent symptoms patients suffer from.
5. Persistent cough
A persistent cough is also a common symptom of COVID-19. Often it concerns a dry cough, which means that there is hardly any mucus. A U.S. study found that 43 percent of people who have had the virus continue to have dry coughs for about 14 to 21 days after diagnosis.
A study by the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 53 percent of COVID-19 patients sometimes suffer from extreme fatigue for up to 60 days after diagnosis. If you’ve noticed that you’ve been very tired for a while and you’ve had other symptoms, you may already have had the virus.
