MONDAY, Jan. 11, 2021 (HealthDay News) — Even people with mild cases of COVID-19 may commonly feel run down and unwell months later, a new study suggests.

The study, of patients at one Irish medical center, found that 62% said they had not returned to “full health” when they had a follow-up appointment a few months after their COVID-19 diagnosis. Nearly half complained of ongoing¬†fatigue.

Surprisingly, the severity of patients’ initial COVID-19 infections were not a factor: People who’d managed at home were as likely to feel unwell as those who’d been hospitalized.
