Aim: Purpose of the present study was to understand as well as assess the signs as well as symptoms in patients after recovery from coronavirus infection.
Methodology: About 287 survivors from COVID-19 were included in the study, each received a questionnaire divided into three main parts starting from subjects’ demographic data, data about the COVID-19 status and other comorbidities of the subject, and finally data about post-COVID-19 manifestations.
Results: Only 10.8% of all subjects have no manifestation after recovery from the disease while a large percentage of subjects suffered from several symptoms and diseases. The most common symptom reported was fatigue (72.8%), more critical manifestations like stroke, renal failure, myocarditis and pulmonary fibrosis were reported by a few percent of the subjects. There was a relationship between the presence of other comorbidities and severity of the disease. Also, the severity of COVID-19 was related to the severity of post-COVID-19 manifestations.
Conclusion: The post-COVID-19 manifestation is largely similar to the post-SARS syndrome. All subjects recovered from COVID-19 should undergo long-term monitoring for evaluation and treatment of symptoms and conditions that might be precipitated with the new coronavirus infection.
