New data suggests that people with Covid-19 can continue to suffer from symptoms for up to nine months after the initial infection, White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday.
Researchers at the University of Washington recently found that 30% of patients reported symptoms for as long as nine months, Fauci told reporters during a White House news briefing on Covid-19. People reported fatigue, shortness of breath, sleep disorders and other symptoms that lasted for months, he said.
Symptoms of “long Covid,” which researchers are now calling Post-Acute Sequelae of Covid-19, or PASC, can develop “well after” infection, and severity can range from mild to “incapacitating,” said Fauci, also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“The magnitude of the problem is not fully known,” he said, adding PASC was also reported in people who did not require hospitalization and people who had symptoms that were not part of their initial infection.
The update comes as global medical experts are working to better diagnose and treat people with persistent Covid-19 symptoms.
Post Pandemic Recovery SPAC Pioneered the Quest for Drug Companies Treating over 15 Long covid Symptoms; Dr. Fauci has just announced that the average length of PAS symptoms is 9 Months and affects up to 30% of all Covid Patients.

Over 15 PAS symptoms have been identified including: Fatigue, Heart disorders, Liver and Kidney failure, alopecia, Clinical Depression, GI disorders, lack of clarity mentally, nausea, arthritis pain and insomnia“.
