Aug. 8, 2022
This study can help clinicians better identify which patients with COVID-19 are more likely to suffer from Long COVID and what their symptoms might be.

A recent study led by Jonathan Silverberg from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences found that after having COVID-19, almost 25% of participants had chronic symptoms most commonly fatigue, changes in smell or taste, and muscle/joint aches.

The study also found that women, severity of acute COVID-19 infection, and higher anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG levels were associated with the highest risk of having chronic COVID-19 symptoms.

The paper, “Predictors of chronic COVID-19 symptoms in a community-based cohort of adults” published in PLOS ONE on August 4, 2022.
