What is LONG COVID?
Corona Virus Disease or COVID-19 is a disease caused by the SARS Cov-19 virus that attacks the respiratory tract. The COVID-19 outbreak has caused many people to worry due to the health problems it causes and its negative impact on people’s health regardless of when someone has been declared free from the virus.
When someone has recovered from COVID-19, but still feels a number of disturbing symptoms is called long covid or post covid. Several journals mention the definition of Long Covid is COVID symptoms that persist for more than 3 months since the onset of symptoms.
This long covid has also received special attention from the World Health Organization (WHO) since many COVID-19 survivors are experiencing such conditions. Based on data from Penanganan COVID-19 dan Pemulihan Ekonomi Nasional (COVID-19 Handling and National Economic Recovery) website, around 5-20% of COVID-19 survivors experience Long Covid for more than 4 weeks and it is estimated that 1 in 10 COVID-19 survivors can experience it for more than 12 weeks.
Long covid does not only occur in COVID-19 survivors with severe symptoms, but can also be experienced by survivors with moderate or even asymptomatic symptoms. The symptoms of long covid that appear in each person may be different. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, some of the symptoms of long covid include:
• Feeling tired easily
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Difficulty concentrating
• Pain in the chest and abdomen
• Heart palpitations
• Muscle ache
• Loss of smell and taste
• Sleep deprivation
Several journals mention the causes of Long COVID, including severe inflammation due to the continuous Cytokine Storm, and cell and tissue damage which causes the body to become easily tired. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting the COVID-19 vaccine immediately, as an effort to prevent the occurrence of Long Covid.
