Long Term Effects of COVID-19
« on: April 22, 2020, 12:40:16 PM »
What is already known and what are long term concerns about lingering effects of COVID-19 after recovery or for those who have had mild no clear known symptoms?
I would include long term effects and morbidity of any intubation.
We have seen articles about effects on the lungs of young people with few symptoms. Are there any follow up studies about how those healed over time?
We have seen reports of the virus residing in testicles. What kind of effects can that have on future fertility and future birth defects?

Another oft forgotten part of the question- we have no clue of the negative effects of this virus. All the more reason to be careful.

A study of SARS patients 15 years later showed that patients still had lung damage. We donít know if COVID will do that as well but SARS is the most similar virus to learn from.

Early on before things accelerated here there were articles that lung x-rays from recovered patients (even from non severe cases) showed significant lung damage.
This was from china so YMMV and I doubt anyone is doing x-rays on recovered patients here as of now.

Yes, but those can possibly heal further over time.

Most lung infections, such as bronchitis and pneumonia can have long lasting damage.

We also don't know how long the virus will stay within the body.  Initially it was a couple weeks, 30 days, two months, now possibly six!  Can it be reactivated later?

IGG IGM testing should tell us that soon. Quest says they will have capability to test next week.

Having long lasting damage doesnt mean youll even know about it.

Think of it like a scar.

Is it reasonable to assume that asymptomatic patients don't have scarred lungs?

No. Asymptomatic patients have had terrible double pnuemonia show up on x-rays.

Wow. How is it possible to have such terrible pneumonia without feeling it?

Or even subpar OxSat, considering we have hospital patients who are functioning surprisingly well with OxSat levels way below normal.

Read this description of a 20-year old who had mild covid-19 symptoms in March, a positive antibody test in April, and was hospitalized in May with the covid-related inflammatory disease recently described in children.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/21/opinion/mis-c-coronavirus-children.html

So there may be health consequences that don't show up till two months after infection. 
Might there be other health consequences after 6 months? 

Hmmm... Let me look that up.... 

Oh, never mind, I'll just ask here:  Did you have covid-19 six months ago?  Any lingering symptoms?
