Long Covid: The two most common 'residual' symptoms seen 9 months after initial infection


What’s more, a total of 18 percent of patients did not return to optimal pre-Covid physical health, while 19 percent showed psychological distress at month nine.

Hospital admission and persistence of symptoms at day 28 and month nine were independent predictors of suboptimal physical health, while female gender and persistence of symptoms at day 28 and month nine were risk factors for psychological distress, the researchers observed.

They concluded: “Patients with advanced age, ICU stay and multiple symptoms at onset were more likely to suffer from long-term symptoms, which had a negative impact on both physical and mental wellbeing.

“This study contributes to identifying the target populations and long Covid consequences for planning long-term recovery interventions.”
