“As many as 46 per cent of those who had been infected with Covid in our study report long-term effects.”.

A study by the University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital shows that more people suffer from long Covid than previously believed.

“As many as 46 per cent of those who had been infected with Covid in our study report long-term effects, which is a very large amount,” professor and infectious medicine specialist Nina Langeland at the University of Bergen told TV2.

Overall, 46% had persisting symptoms 12 months after COVID-19. Compared with controls, adult cases had a high risk of fatigue, memory problems, concentration problems, and dyspnea.

The prevalence of memory problems increased overall from 6 to 18 months and among women.
