    Default Covid-19 Survivors Could Suffer Health Effects For Years

    More than one million people around the world have been deemed recovered from the coronavirus, but beating the initial sickness may be just the first of many battles for those who have survived.Some recovered patients report breathlessness, fatigue and body pain months after first becoming infected.

    Default Re: Covid-19 Survivors Could Suffer Health Effects For Years

    So, long lasting damage could continue to manifest anywhere in the body, from the heart to the kidneys, toes, and even the gut. I would prefer long lasting damage anywhere but my gut, as almost 70 percent of the body's immune cells are located in the gut. Long lasting damage to the gut increases the likelihood of multiple, concurrent, and systemic diseases. I would rather deal with damage to one of my organs, like the heart or lungs, than deal with several organs or systemic diseases at the same time, which becomes much more likely with persistent, extensive damage to the gut.
