COVID-19 has both short and long-term effects for patients around the world. Recent evidence has shown symptoms can remain long after an acute COVID-19 infection, now referred to as long COVID. Long COVID can affect all COVID-19 patients, from those with very mild symptoms to those with severe COVID symptoms.
Like acute COVID-19, long COVID can involve multiple organs and can affect many systems including, cardiovascular.
The symptoms of long COVID include:
- Shortness of Breath
- Chest Pain
- Low Blood Pressure
