Best Life Logo By Sage Young of Best Life | Slide 1 of 5: It's become clear over the course of the pandemic so far that a bout with COVID-19 may affect a survivor for the rest of their life. Even after the virus has left their bodies, patients are reporting lingering symptoms. Doctors have warned that COVID can damage your heart, lungs, and kidneys, leaving these vital organs weakened long after "recovery." In a new study published in the Journal of Medical Virology, survivors of the disease shared their long-term effects of COVID, which researchers say prove the need for post-recovery treatment plans. While we're only seven months into the existence of the novel coronavirus in the U.S. and won't know for years what havoc it wreaks in the long run, this new study suggests that COVID patients do not return completely to "normal." Here are the four ways the coronavirus can stay with you for months—or maybe even years—according to COVID survivors. And for more on what the disease can look like, here are the 4 Coronavirus Symptoms Most Likely to Be Deadly.
