More long-term damage caused by COVID-19 than expected | COVID-19 Special

Thousands of people of all ages are staying sick for weeks -- even months. A study by Denmark's Aarhus University found a third of corona patients suffered long-term side effects. For some, the virus doesn't just come and go. It stays. The disease can damage the lungs, heart and brain, increasing the risk of long-term health problems.

The After-Effects of COVID-19 Can Last for Months | Good Morning Britain

Scientists want to ascertain whether post-Covid syndrome should be recognised as an illness in its own right as Covid-19 sufferers are reporting debilitating symptoms for weeks or months after recovery. A recent study has revealed that one in ten people are struggling to shake off Covid-19, many are experiencing crushing fatigue, breathlessness and brain fog longer than expected – in some cases leaving them bed-bound or unable to work full time.

What's the psychological impact of the coronavirus pandemic? | COVID-19 Special

The coronavirus brings us tough times, you switch on the news or look at your favourite website, and it's not a pretty picture. More dead every day, infections on the rise - Johns Hopkins now counts more than 1 million cases, Health care systems reaching their limits. Whole countries in lockdown, friends and families cutting off contact with each other. And it doesn't end there - businesses facing bancruptcy, workers losing their jobs in droves. It is all pretty scary stuff.
What corona virus does to the body is quite well known by now, and more research is under way, but what does it do to our soul? Fear of infection, the isolation, worries about loved ones who are at risk. How can we get through these challenging times without feeling helpless and depressed?

Understanding the extent of damage COVID-19 does to the body

As the number of coronavirus cases continues to surge worldwide, health experts are learning more about the extent of the damage COVID-19 can do. The lungs have been considered ground zero, but now doctors are finding its reach extends to other organs. Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a New York pulmonologist and intensive care specialist, joined CBSN to break it all down.

The Long-Term Damage Caused by COVID-19

“Extra’s” Billy Bush sat down with Dr. Armand Dorian, who discussed the long-term damage caused by COVID-19, the danger of “silent spreaders,” and news about cleaning products that kill the coronavirus.

What Are the Long-term Effects of Covid-19?

Researchers want to know the long-term effects of Covid-19 on recovered patients. Dr. David Darley is a respiratory physician at St Vincent’s hospital in Sydney who is co-leading a study of about 100 Covid-19 patients to try to get some answers.

He explains that there are different disease severities.

“What we're studying at the moment is the patients who had mild symptoms and then the patients who had severe Covid. Anybody who has to go to ICU for a period of time, many of them get a condition called PICS, post-intensive care syndrome. And it's characterized by weakness. Sometimes patients need rehabilitation. Fortunately, in many cases, that syndrome is reversible. If anyone experienced complications during their stay, they may never reach their former baseline level of functioning.”

David expects there will be a reasonable burden on the kind of specialties that look after post-infectious, post-ICU patients.

“So we're talking about the rehab specialists, the rehab units, the physios, OTs, social workers. Speech pathologists we often contact if patients have breathing tubes in their vocal cords. And they can often have hoarseness for a while and we need speech paths involved. If we're talking about even short to medium-term problems, it's more economic burden on the health-care system, resource burden. It's taking patients away from their regular roles in terms of employment and in roles as carers. There's a broader economic problem which follows the health problem.”

In most people, the virus causes mild symptoms or none at all -- at least at the time they have the virus. But even asymptomatic patients may suffer lingering effects.

“Even the patients who didn't need to be hospitalized, some are still complaining of symptoms 3 or 4 months down the track. And, you know, these symptoms can be disabling for people, especially if you're in a profession where you need to be at the top of your game physiologically. The whole aim of our study is to work out why this is happening, what the impairments are and what patients need.”

Scientists warn brain damage may be linked to COVID-19

A study from University College London describes 43 cases of patients with COVID-19 who suffered adverse effects on the brain, including strokes. Dr. Hadi Manji, a joint author of that study and consultant neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London, joins CBSN to discuss the findings.

A Canadian scientist is leading a global study on COVID-19’s effects on the brain

A Canadian neuroscientist is heading a global study to explore the lasting impacts of COVID-19 on the brain. The COVID-19 Brain Study looks to recruit 50,000 individuals who received a confirmed positive diagnosis of the virus in order to answer pressing questions about the disease’s direct and indirect effects on the brain.
