One Sure Sign You've Already Had Coronavirus, Says Dr. Fauci

ETNT Health Logo By Leah Groth of ETNT Health | Slide 1 of 13: The idea that COVID-19 is just a flu that passes in time was never true, we now know. So-called "long-haulers" are suffering effects of the disease months later, with no cure in sight."If you look anecdotally there is no question that there are a considerable number of individuals who have a post-viral syndrome that really in many respects can incapacitate them for weeks and weeks following so-called recovery and clearing of the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, at the International AIDS Society COVID-19 press conference last week. "You can see people who've recovered who really do not get back to normal that they have things that are highly suggestive of myalgic encephalomyelitis and chronic fatigue syndrome. Brain fog, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating so this is something we really need to seriously look at because it very well might be a post-viral syndrome associated with COVID-19." Here are 10 other symptoms that could last forever.
