What is long COVID-19? A direct response to this question is one of the reasons why long COVID-19 itself was difficult to identify and difficult to research. It’s difficult to understand. Long COVID-19 symptoms overlap with other diseases, namely what was formerly known as chronic fatigue syndrome. Something you can’t describe is difficult to study.
Chronic tiredness, now known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, is also supposed to at least sometimes be caused by viral infections. And if you have this disease or know someone else, you will understand the difficulties of not knowing how to identify it and what therapy could work best for medical specialists.
Technically, you need to become infected with COVID-19 first. Otherwise, you cannot get the long form of it. tAll COVID-19 vaccinations are efficient since they prevent dangerous COVID-19 infections successfully. If you are immunized, your odds of having COVID-19 in the long term have automatically been decreased by decreasing your probability of obtaining the virus. According to the CDC, “The best way to prevent post-COVID conditions [their name for long COVID] is by getting vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as you can.”
Moreover, scientific studies appear to back up these claims. A new Lancet study reveals that:
We found that the odds of having symptoms for 28 days or more after post-vaccination infection were approximately halved by having two vaccine doses. This result suggests that the risk of long COVID-19 is reduced in individuals who have received double vaccination, when additionally considering the already documented reduced risk of infection overall.
In non-vaccinated persons, infections appear to be more severe compared to breakthrough cases. Vaccinated individuals who get COVID-19 are less prone to suffer serious illness, be hospitalized, or pass away. A new study from Fair Health has concluded that persons with more serious symptoms had long COVIDs-19 more often than persons with fairly moderate symptoms.
