As with all viruses, symptoms of COVID-19 can linger for weeks…even months…after the infection is gone. Symptoms can include aches, foggy head and fatigue. Post-COVID fatigue syndrome does not discriminate between those who had serious cases of COVID and those who had only mild cases—it’s about how your body reacted to the illness.
