Lingering Covid symptoms pose ‘really serious problem,’ researcher says

A new study out of Northwestern University shows that 85% of long-haulers — Covid patients who have largely recovered from the worst of the disease, but continue to experience long-term symptoms — experienced four or more neurologic symptoms.

Northwestern scientists call it the first study of its kind. It tracked 100 Covid patients, mostly women at an average age of 43.
