huffpost: As doctors and scientists race to understand the many ways in which COVID-19 ― the illness caused by the novel coronavirus ― affects the brain and body, they’re also trying to figure out the sort of long-term impact the infection could have on patients.

The virus has only been around since late December, or at least that’s what the current evidence suggests, so even the initial COVID-19 patients are still in their early days of recovery.

A new study from China gives us a first glimpse of what may be in store for patients who battle moderate-to-severe cases of COVID-19. By testing biological markers of recovered patients, researchers found that recovered patients had lingering issues with liver function. The intense damage we’re seeing in some people’s lungs and hearts also has researchers concerned that the health issues won’t end once the infection clears up.

What do you think about this information?
Can the long-term effects be greater than those of the present?

Possibly, yes. But not on cellular level.

The sheer level of recession and the multiple ways the pandemic has impacted every single country will lead to problems, at least during this year or the following.

Take Italy, for example. It was heavily hit and a significant number of their population was either sick or could not an stagnating economy like theirs this pandemic was a nightmare.

There can also be a possibility of virus strains evolving inside the body and cannot be removed completely. However, it definitely is going to change the way we live. But I believe there can be long term defects in affected patients.
