Numerous studies have confirmed that novel coronavirus infection in humans produced long-lasting side effects even after the symptoms of the initial infection disappeared completely, which we call long-term COVID symptoms. These effects of post-coronavirus remnants mainly were the appearance of brain fog, fatigue, shortness of breath, chronic pain, loss of smell, loss of taste, and diarrhea. These post COVID symptoms can put eternal side effects on the body.
According to published medical research papers, long-term COVID-19 symptoms are mainly caused by the damage to the body's own immune system and inflammation following COVID-19 infection. Studies have also shown that for a small proportion of patients with COVID-19, as trace amounts of coronaviruses remain latent in their bodies for a long time, this residual trace amount of live virus will continue to invade the body's cells and repeatedly activate the immune system, leading to long-term inflammatory response. This long-term effect is concentrated in the heart, kidneys, and brain, in addition to being manifested in the lungs.
