Covid-19 decreases in Europe and the US. Less people get seriously ill. But there are reasons to be cautious. One of them is Long Covid.

  • Covid Infections are going down, less people end up in ICU and countries are lifting their anti-Covid measures. But there are still things to worry about.
  • One of them is “Long Covid” – a term for a condition affecting people who recover from coronavirus but continue to suffer from a wide range of symptoms long after they contracted the virus.
  • A study found that nearly two-thirds of long-term Covid patients reported “brain fog,” which included memory loss.
  • Even though children are at very low risk of falling ill with Covid, some can develop long Covid and suffer enormously from the side effects.
  • Science is developing treatments however and experts are moving fast. But there is still a lot to be found out about the mysterious disease.
