About 60,000 of them fell ill for more than three months due to Covid-19.
This data was revealed by Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London.
Meredith, 22, and Elly, 37, are among British citizens who are still showing symptoms months after being infected with the coronavirus.
Meredith said that as a young child, she was not too worried about the disease caused by the coronavirus.
However, she first showed symptoms of contracting the coronavirus in mid-April.
The symptoms he experienced did not go away quickly, even though he was declared free of the coronavirus.
“I spoke with the doctor and they said that there are patients who continue to show symptoms of Covid-19 [despite being declared free of the virus].
Doctors said the patient had enough rest, “said Meredith.
Meredith thought that as a young and active woman, she would get through the infection easily and quickly.
“I’m still experiencing shortness of breath and this situation worries me a lot,” he said.
The same thing happened to Elly.
Before showing symptoms of the coronavirus, Elly exercised and did yoga almost every day.
This woman said she believed she had the coronavirus on March 21 while preparing for a marathon in London.
She was told that the coronavirus would disappear after some time.
Six months passed, he was still experiencing shortness of breath and feeling extremely tired.
The Covid-19 symptoms that he continues to experience make her unable to work, have to stay at home, and unable to see friends.
She had to change clinics to get the treatment she needed.
However, doctors still cannot give advice on what to do so that Elly can recover as before.
Martin Marshall, an administrator of a medical organization in the UK, said the number of people who continue to show symptoms of Covid-19 – even though they have been declared cured – is increasing.
This former Covid-19 patient needs to be thoroughly examined in a clinic or at a rehabilitation center, for example to see if their lungs and heart are in good condition, he said.
