There is no end to the coronavirus pandemic in sight yet and the world is already staring at another health crisis: the “post-Covid syndrome”.

Post-Covid-19 analysis by top American scientific bodies the National Center for Biotechnology Information and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that many patients who recovered from the coronavirus infection are facing milder to life-threatening symptoms.

• Heart Damage

A sample study by the Journal of American Medical Association conducted in Frankfurt, Germany found 78% of the recovered Covid-19 respondents developed heart-related problems. Another study by the UK’s Edinburgh University, in 69 countries across six continents, found heart abnormality in 55% patients while 15% patients showed severe abnormalities. All such recovered cases never had related issues in the past.

• Pulmonary Fibrosis

Many recovered Covid-19 patients are also being re-hospitalised for pulmonary fibrosis, with damaged lung tissues, may need oxygen support from time to time for the rest of their lives.

• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

According to a research paper posted by America’s National Institute of Health and similar papers published by other health-science entities, the post-Covid syndrome can cause patients even to have nervous, immune, and metabolic system abnormalities, all affecting the body in sync, similar to a health illness known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)/myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), that was identified 70 years ago.

• Kawasaki-like disease

Post-Covid-19 syndrome is also affecting children. Kawasaki-like disease or multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) is a rare but life-threatening Covid-19 effect.
