The understanding of long Covid symptoms is changing. Some research suggests that they may disappear over time. A recent study in Britain found that only two percent of people with long Covid symptoms reported it. This is despite the fact that a large proportion of the population has been infected.
“We now have more people who are postinfection over a longer period of time, and as you go along, the percentage of people reporting long Covid symptoms gets smaller and smaller,” Apoorva said. “So the final percentage of people who have persistent symptoms for years, that’s not a huge number — we hope. The problem is we still just know so very little about long Covid.”
