There is a lot of concern about deaths resulting from or exacerbated by SARS-CoV-2 infections, but I can find little about the potential long-term health impacts on those who 'recover' (understandably, I suppose).

Some articles have touched on health impacts including reduced lung function, brain damage and organ damage. Is there a list of such impacts, how long people might suffer them and other such information? It seems to me the case fatality rate is just part of the picture.

  • There are manys such lists. We require questions to demonstrate some degree of prior research here, so what has your research revealed so far?

  • @CareyGregory Solely that damage can be caused to the lungs, kidneys, heart and brain. Nothing about whether it is damage that will heal over time and how long a time or respective proportions of people who suffer / will suffer in such respects; little detail about what kind of damage.
