In the weeks and months after a COVID infection, some people develop a variety of symptoms, commonly referred to as long COVID. Fatigue is the most common, affecting a little over half of people with ongoing symptoms. Other common symptoms include shortness of breath, loss of smell, muscle ache and brain fog.
Our understanding of why some people face ongoing symptoms after COVID is still poor. And much like the varying nature of long COVID symptoms, the duration and intensity of symptoms differ from person to person.
