DENVER (AP) — In Colorado, dozens of people report a wide range of lingering COVID-19 symptoms. They include shortness of breath, elevated heart rate, fatigue and malaise.
Colorado Public Radio reports that COVID-19 symptoms can linger for weeks, even months, but much is unknown about the reasons.
A Facebook group called Survivor Corps for those who describe themselves as “long haulers” has just over 102,000 members.
The World Health Organization estimates that 80 percent of COVID-19 infections are mild or asymptomatic and that patients recover after two weeks. But those who are still suffering question the notion of a "mild” case.
