Some ef­fects of COVID-19, from fa­tigue to brain fog, can linger long af­ter the virus is gone. The Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Preven­tion re­ported that 35 per­cent of adult pa­tients, most of whom had not been in the hos­pi­tal, had not re­turned to their “usual state of health” two to three weeks af­ter test­ing pos­i­tive. And an Ital­ian study pub­lished July 9 in JAMA found that 87 per­cent of pa­tients who were hos­pi­tal­ized still had at least one lin­ger­ing symp­tom (fa­tigue be­ing the most com­mon) 60 days af­ter their first.
