This seems like an appropriate thread to resuscitate, based on a few recent posts regarding long term effects of covid:

1. Ergel posted this article Covid-19 Can Last Several Months from The Atlantic, on long term effects of covid

2. Lurker posted this article http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/282581 from Israel 

3. I've recently heard about the following cases
male, about 40, used to work out with a trainer, now gets winded after less than 10 minutes of activity
female, about 40, experiencing chronic pain on her side since having COVID
male, 60s, having visual problems since COVID

Yet @ExGingi and @Kobe bryent each say they know about 100 people who have no long-term problems.  Do they really have no more symptoms, or they just haven't mentioned them?   It would be helpful if those with many recovered friends could ask them specifically whether or not they have any remaining symptoms from COVID-19, and post the results here.  Maybe DDF will contribute another breakthrough, like the early discovery of loss of smell as a symptom.  ;)
Being that the virus arrived here appx than 4 months ago its a bit difficult to ascertain long term health issues. You would need at least a couple of years for that.

I heard a couple of people say that they are still very sensitive to the smell of eggs. Wondering if anyone else out there had that.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Yes, certainly, we can return in a few years to update!  I should have written "lingering" rather than "long term" symptoms.  That is, while most recover within a week, some people are still unwell many weeks after infection.

Kobe bryent and ExGingi think lingering symptoms are rare, based on not hearing about them from acquaintances.  I was suggesting that directly asking acquaintances whether they still have symptoms might elicit a more accurate response.

I personally know over 100 people in my immediate circle, who have had Covid19, and AFAIK none have any issues BH (may it continue so).
The only lingering effect that I have heard of in my circles (probably just as large), is of some people not having their sense of smell (and possibly taste) fully recovered.

Have also heard of a few people reporting general weakness or some shortness of breath (not as bad as when they were sick, but not as good as before).

I know this is weird and purely anecdotal but some of the people I know whoíve had moderate cases of COVID (sick in bed, high fever, some with lower oxygen, but not hospitalized) have seemed very nervous and on edge since. Theyíll get angry at very little provocation, get annoyed with little things that didnít seem to bother them before, more anxious, etc. As I said, very weird. Anyone else find this?

I know some will say this is due to quarantine but Iím specifically referring to people whoíve had moderate cases of COVID. Iím not sure about severe cases but I havenít seen it in people who havenít had it or had very mild cases.

What about the long term mental health issues of the lockdown?
What about the long term effects of post nasal drip?

That prob has more to do with quarentene than COVID

covid can have an affect on the central nervous system. (no smell, for example)
Having a brush with death can have a mental health affect.
Long term fatigue, especially when it seems like you're the only one, or you wonder if your fatigue is real, can be very frustrating.

Visible right here on DDF.  😢
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I think you're being kind. Were those people who were calmer/reasonable before Covid-19?

I know a few people who have been like that since corona. Until know I thought it was due to loss of parnassa, but who knows?
