On October 30, local time, WHO held a routine press conference for coronavirus.
WHO Director-General Tan Desai said that what is really worrying is that the various symptoms caused by coronavirus fluctuate over time and often overlap.
Can affect any system of the human body, from fatigue, coughing and shortness of breath to inflammation or damage to major organs including the heart and lungs, and even affect the nervous system and psychology.
The coronavirus can not only take lives, but also cause a series of serious long-term effects for a considerable number of people. Although people can recover from it, the speed of recovery can be slow, sometimes taking weeks or months, and it is not always straightforward.
Tan Desai pointed out that although the number of people with long-term effects is still unclear, non-inpatient and hospitalized patients have reported subsequent symptoms and complications, both men and women, young and old, and even children have such symptoms.
The WHO will continue to conduct more research to establish the best standards of care, speed up recovery and prevent such complications.
Governments must recognize the long-term impact of COVID-19 and ensure that all such patients have access to medical services, including basic health care and necessary professional care and rehabilitation.
