There’s a new review of research that has been published a couple of days ago in the journal Nature Medicine that describes the potential long-term effects of the coronavirus on the entire body.
The analysis highlights the challenges that long haulers are facing during their recovery.
NBC News reported that this review analyzed every organ affected by long-term Covid-19, including the lungs, heart, kidneys and skin, as well as the gastrointestinal, neurologic and endocrine systems.
It’s been also reported that this publication comes at a time when dozens of post-Covid clinics have been established across the country, catering to Covid-19 patients whose symptoms have persisted for months on end.
“With the recognition of more multi-organ effects of this virus, the need for multidisciplinary care is becoming more evident,” said Dr. Kartik Sehgal, one of the paper’s authors.
He is a medical oncologist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, and it’s important to note the fact that he turned his attention away from cancer when the pandemic began last spring. “We all kind of came together as an entire field of doctors to take care of the surging needs in the hospitals to care for Covid-19 patients,” he said.
