Abstract

Symptoms of long COVID were found in 38% of 170 patients followed median 22.6 months. Most prevalent symptoms were fatigue, affected taste and smell, and difficulties remembering and concentrating. Predictors for long COVID were older age and number of symptoms in the acute phase. Long COVID may take many months, maybe years to resolve.
