About half of the COVID-19 survivors from Bergamo, one of Italy’s coronavirus epicenters, haven’t recovered 6 months on, providing a stark warning of the pandemic’s lingering aftermath
The lingering effects are often forgotten and the long-term effects are unknown. Some people report that their sense of smell has not returned since they recovered six months ago. Some have lung damage which may or may not recover. Some have heart damage which may or may not recover.
This isn’t like a cold that simply goes away. Like many illnesses, there are battle scars. It’s better to not get it.
