The majority of people who contract COVID-19 survive the virus – it’s those with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, that have been shown to suffer complications. But those who survive the virus aren’t always guaranteed a full recovery.
“While most persons with COVID-19 recover and return to normal health, some patients can have symptoms that can last for weeks or even months after recovery from acute illness,” explains the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“Even people who are not hospitalized and who have mild illness can experience persistent or late symptoms.”
The most commonly reported long-term symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, cough, joint pain, and chest pain.
But experts have now warned of another side effect of the virus – sudden teeth loss.
