Effect of COVID-19 on the lungs

16 May, 2022

One of the main health problems that many patients experience after contracting COVID-19 is respiratory issues, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and persistent coughing. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), some people experience symptoms weeks to months after the diagnosis—regardless of the need for hospitalization—including stress, respiratory, and neurological complications.

In this case, it is necessary to consult a licensed doctor as early as possible to administer appropriate treatments. It is common for patients to suffer from post-COVID complications such as pulmonary fibrosis, chronic lung infections, and allergic bronchitis.
