The coronavirus continues to be alarming, with a CDC study showing that many COVID-19 recovered patients persist for extended periods. Based on the complaints of patients, 172 symptoms were identified that may be associated with coronavirus infection.
The CDC published a study of 292 subjects who contracted COVID-19 and received outpatient treatment between April 15 and June 25. They were interviewed 2 and 3 weeks after the initial examination.
At the initial examination, 94% had 1-17 symptoms. Most often, patients complained of fatigue, followed by cough and headache. In 65%, normal health was restored within 5-12 days of being in isolation after the initial examination.
Symptoms lasting several weeks

A list of 172 symptoms was compiled. They manifested themselves in COVID-19 patients and were associated with different body systems. Among them: visual disturbances, various types of rashes, memory and motor impairment, indigestion and even baldness. It is not yet clear whether these symptoms are related to the disease itself, to treatment for it, or to an extended hospital stay.
Age played a significant role in the manifestation of symptoms. Most of those suffering from these disorders were 50 or more years old. 47% of them complained that symptoms persisted for several weeks after the first examination. Only 26% of patients aged 18-34 years faced similar problems, in the age group 35-49 years - 32%.

More than half said they had 3 or more symptoms after undergoing COVID-19.
