The latest report from the World Health Organization (WHO) titled “What we know about the long-term effects of COVID-19”, which was updated on Sept. 9, 2020, says that COVID-19 “can sometimes result in prolonged illness, even in adults and children without underlying chronic medical conditions”.
It also cautions, “For some people, some symptoms may linger or recur for weeks or months following initial recovery,” even in people who developed a mild form of the disease.
A telephone survey found that 35% of symptomatic adults “had not returned to their usual state of health when interviewed 2-3 weeks after testing [negative for COVID-19]”.
