Uncovering the Risk of Long-Term COVID-19: How Long Are You Contagious and What Are the Health Risks?

A new study published in the medical journal The Lancet has revealed alarming news about the long-term effects of COVID-19. According to the study, people who have had COVID-19 are at a much greater risk of dying for at least 18 months after infection.

The study also found that the latest COVID variant is highly contagious and can remain contagious for an average of two weeks.

In addition, the study found that long COVID, or post-COVID syndrome, can be diagnosed in adults by categorizing its symptoms. These symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, and brain fog. By categorizing these symptoms, doctors can detect long COVID earlier, allowing them to provide better treatment.

The study also noted that it is important to take precautions against the virus, even after being infected. This includes continuing to wear masks, avoiding large crowds, and washing hands regularly.

These findings are a stark reminder of the dangers of COVID-19 and the importance of taking all necessary precautions to protect yourself and those around you.
