Chronic fatigue has been found to be the most common symptom among the post-Covid-19 patients from the PGI centre. The centre is mentoring patients from CMC Ludhiana, PGIMS Rohtak and KIMS Srinagar. The institute has registered 700 patients as part of the Indian Council and Medical Research (ICMR) trials for post-Covid-19 registry since October.

However, doctors at some of the hospitals have been seeing post-Covid-19 syndrome in patients with variety of problems, including neuropathy, hair loss, lung fibrosis etc. But at the same time, after two to three months, patients have recovered from these complications.

The ICMR has slotted 100 centres in the country for compiling a repository of such data to understand the overall trend, treatment, symptoms and post-Covid-19 complications. For neurologists, the most common problem in the recovered patients was neuropathy.
