COVID-19, caused by SARS-CoV-2, can involve sequelae and other medical complications that last weeks to months after initial recovery, which has come to be called Long-COVID or COVID long-haulers. This systematic review and meta-analysis aims to identify studies assessing long-term effects of COVID-19 and estimates the prevalence of each symptom, sign, or laboratory parameter of patients at a post-COVID-19 stage. LitCOVID (PubMed and Medline) and Embase were searched by two independent researchers. All articles with original data for detecting long-term COVID-19 published before 1st of January 2021 and with a minimum of 100 patients were included. For effects reported in two or more studies, meta-analyses using a random-effects model were performed using the MetaXL software to estimate the pooled prevalence with 95% CI. Heterogeneity was assessed using I2 statistics. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviewers and Meta-analysis (PRISMA) reporting guideline was followed. A total of 18,251 publications were identified, of which 15 met the inclusion criteria.
The prevalence of 55 long-term effects was estimated, 21 meta-analyses were performed, and 47,910 patients were included. The follow-up time ranged from 15 to 110 days post-viral infection. The age of the study participants ranged between 17 and 87 years.
It was estimated that 80% (95% CI 65-92) of the patients that were infected with SARS-CoV-2 developed one or more long-term symptoms.
The five most common symptoms were

  • fatigue (58%),
  • headache (44%),
  • attention disorder (27%),
  • hair loss (25%), and
  • dyspnea (24%). [[[difficult or labored breathing]

All meta-analyses showed medium (n=2) to high heterogeneity (n=13). In order to have a better understanding, future studies need to stratify by

  • sex,
  • age,
  • previous comorbidities,
  • severity of COVID-19 (ranging from asymptomatic to severe), and
  • duration of each symptom.

From the clinical perspective, multi-disciplinary teams are crucial to developing preventive measures, rehabilitation techniques, and clinical management strategies with whole-patient perspectives designed to address long COVID-19 care.

The patient follow-up time ranged from 14 days to 110 days.
Six out of the 11 studies included only patients hospitalized for COVID-19.
The rest of the studies mixed mild, moderate, and severe COVID-19 patients.

Those who get COVID-19 after being vaccinated (breakthru) are 1/2 as likely to get long-haul - Sept 2021

New York Times reporting on Lancet

1/3 of UK Long Haul has lasted more than 1 year - July 2021


  • The U.K. strategy has been sharply criticized. More than 120 scientists co-signed a letter in the Lancet medical journal on July 7, warning that rising infections could leave hundreds of thousands of people with illness and disability “for decades to come.” International experts joined their British counterparts online to sound a further warning on July 16.
  • An estimated 962,000 people, or 1.5% of the population, have experienced self-reported long Covid symptoms in the U.K., according to data from the Office for National Statistics published earlier this month. More than a third of those said they’ve suffered for more than a year.

    • Affected individuals typically report experiencing one or more of the following symptoms: tiredness, difficulty concentrating, headache, loss of smell or taste, dizziness upon standing, heart palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, cough, muscle or joint pain, depression, anxiety, and/or fever (CDC, Post-COVID Conditions 4/8/21Johansson, J Am Coll Cardiol Case Rep 2021Perlis, JAMA Netw Open 2021Boscolo-Rizzo, medRxiv 2021 — preprint). A surveillance study in England among 511 people who had recovered from COVID and 1,160 who were not known to have had COVID found that sensory (e.g., loss of taste or smell), neurologic (e.g., difficulty concentrating), and cardiorespiratory symptoms (e.g., chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations) were more common among those with long COVID than those with no history of infection, while dermatologic (e.g., rashes, hives, or bruising), gastrointestinal (e.g., bloating, nausea, cramps), and mental health symptoms (e.g., depression or anxiety) were not (Amin-Chowdhury, medRxiv 2021 — preprint). The duration of long COVID is still unknown, but at least one study has reported altered taste or smell persisting for up to 12 months (Boscolo-Rizzo, medRxiv 2021 — preprint).
