Long haulers are individuals who experience long-term health effects after recovering from COVID-19. These symptoms can last for weeks, months, or even longer and can include fatigue, brain fog, joint pain, breathing difficulties and other physical ailments.
In the United States alone, it is estimated that 10% of people infected with Covid have become long haulers. The cause of these ongoing symptoms is not yet fully understood, but may be linked to an overactive immune response
in some cases. It has also been suggested that inflammation caused by the virus could damage organs such as the heart and lungs which would lead to persistent symptoms.
Some researchers believe that there may be a genetic component involved as well, since some people appear to be more susceptible than others to becoming long haulers. In order to provide support for those affected by this condition there have been several initiatives launched around the world including online support groups and resources dedicated specifically for long haulers from Covid-19.
Additionally, medical professionals are beginning to recognize this phenomenon more frequently so
they can better diagnose and treat patients with lingering issues related to their recovery from
coronavirus infection. It is important that we continue researching into what causes these prolonged
health problems in order to find ways of helping those suffering from them cope better with their
daily lives while living through the pandemic’s aftermaths until treatments can be developed further
down the line, if needed at all.
