IT is still not well understood why some people suffer from long term cognitive and physical problems after battling and recovering from a Covid-19 infection, said Sungai Buloh Hospital infectious disease consultant Dr Suresh Kumar Chidambaram.

The condition known as “Long Covid” happens when people who upon recovering still continue to suffer long term effects of the virus.

They are fatigued, they get tired very fast, some of them have shortness of breath and they will have muscle aches and chest pains.

“Some people have brain fog, their thinking is not as agile as before, they are slow in thinking,” Suresh said. – April 6, 2021.
