Healthy but not recovered
The Corona virus has been dominating our daily lives for more than a year now. Millions of people worldwide have been infected with the virus. Although most of them have recovered from the viral disease, some still do not feel completely recovered. Even months after their illness, they still suffer from long-term damage from COVID-19 and sometimes severe symptoms. Patients who have had a severe course of COVID are particularly affected. Approximately 10 percent of those infected with COVID still suffer from long-term psychological and physical effects months later. Even people with mild courses are increasingly affected by post-COVID syndrome. Learn more about the psychological consequences of the Corona pandemic in the interview with chief physician Dr. Koutsonasios.

However, not only those suffering from COVID are affected by the disease and its consequences. People who have lost a loved one, for example, or who are struggling with existential fears due to a job loss, also frequently suffer from the psychological consequences of COVID.

The symptoms of corona infection are varied. The virus attacks not only the lungs, as initially thought, but also other organs and nerves. The most common long-term consequences include:
According to a study from London, people who developed COVID at an advanced age or who were overweight have an increased risk of long-term sequelae. Also, women and hospitalized patients are more likely to be affected by long-COVID syndrome. Younger patients and those with mild courses are also not exempt from long-COVID symptoms and may struggle with the consequences of corona infection.
