"Long Haul Covid" Means Serious Symptoms Days, Weeks & Months Later 


The Copper River Native Association, which reported on February 26th, 2021, that there have been 234 known cases of coronavirus in our region, just put out a bulletin.

"Long Haul Covid" is very real and dangerous. These are serious symptoms following illness from Covid. 

Here's CRNA's report...

In a briefing Thursday, The National Institutes of Health introduced Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 Infection," or PASC. 

Up until now, PASC has been referred to as "Long Haul COVID," as some patients are feeling effects of the disease for weeks and even months after their initial infection with the virus. 

The most commonly reported symptoms of PASC are "fatigue, worsening of symptoms after physical or mental activity, shortness of breath, trouble sleeping and difficulty thinking clearly" 

(1). The federal government released $1.15 billion in funding in December to research the long term effects of COVID over the next four years, initially intended to study the damaging effects of severe acute COVID, it will now also include research data of those suffering from PASC. 

If you or someone you know is suffering from the long term effects of COVID, call CRNA at 822-5241 today to speak to a provider.
