Covid-19: One in eight people keep one of the characteristic symptoms of long Covid for the long term, according to… – 20 Minutes

An important step forward to better understand the effects of Covid in the long term. Among people with Covid 19, one in eight retains one of the hallmark symptoms of long Covid over the long term, shows a large study published on Friday. These symptoms include “abdominal pain, difficulty and pain in breathing, muscle pain, ageusia or anosmia [perte du goût ou de l’odorat], tingling, discomfort in the throat, hot or cold flushes, heaviness in the arms or legs as well as general fatigue”, lists this study published in the Lancet. “In 12.7% of patients, these symptoms can be attributed to Covid-19”, three to five months after infection, conclude the authors. This work, carried out in the Netherlands, is, by its scope and methodology , an important piece to better understand the risk of long Covid, i.e. the persistence of lasting symptoms after infection with the coronavirus. Specific sequelae In the current state of knowledge, we know that there are certain patients with sequelae specific to a coronavirus infection and that these are not explained solely by psychosomatic disorders, as some doctors initially put forward. But we largely ignore the frequency of these disorders and, even more, the physiological mechanisms by which they intervene. If the Lancet study does not answer this second question, it makes it possible to better clarify the first element, firstly because it was carried out on a large number of patients: more than 4,000 people with Covid. In these patients, the episode of Covid 19 was confirmed by a PCR test or a doctor’s diagnosis. these patients were compared to those given by a group of people who did not have Covid. Because it is possible to feel one of the symptoms listed, without the Covid being the cause. In fact, almost 9% of people who have not had Covid have one of the symptoms described above. Among former Covid patients, the proportion rises to 21.4%. It is by subtraction that the researchers manage to conclude that just over 12% of people struck by Covid develop a sequelae specifically linked to the disease. However, this study has certain limitations, such as not having measured the frequency of other symptoms associated with long Covid, including a state of depression or mental confusion.
