Stay safe, stay healthy and stick with science.
We have known that patients who get severely ill with COVID-19, those that end up in the hospital, those that
go to intensive care, that those patients could develop something known as post-intensive care syndrome. That
syndrome has been described well before COVID in patients who’ve been critically ill. And so, we are seeing those
types of prolonged symptoms and functional limitations in patients who’ve been critically ill with COVID-19. That
includes people who have a persistent cough, who have persistent shortness of breath, perhaps some physical limitations
due to being critically ill and in bed for a long time, as well as, potentially cognitive issues as well, after being so
sick. And so, we are concerned about that type of post-intensive care syndrome, that we will see with patients after
acute COVID-19 hospitalization. There are also smaller reports, and this is something that we need really to understand
better, of patients who were not hospitalized, that means patients who are mildly ill. There are reports that those
patients have continued to have some protracted symptoms, such as coughing, such as some shortness of breath, such as
some trouble with breathing, some extensive symptoms of fatigue. So, there is a concern there that needs to be much
better understood about for those patients that were mild and potentially without risk factors.
Well, I think the takeaway, the most important one is prevention. I think we need to continue to prevent the
transmission of SARS-CoV-2, in order to prevent any acute infection, with SARS-CoV-2 or any illness such as COVID-19.
If we prevent the acute disease, we will not have persistent symptoms, right? So, I think that’s the number one. The
number two is that, we need to understand better how many people will suffer from prolonged symptoms; how many of
those people are the people are from the hospital, that will have the post-intensive care syndrome; and also, how many
of those people are the younger people that may have more mild illness but still suffer from protracted symptoms,
that may cause them limitations in their quality of life.
Well, WHO is really the only global authority that can develop a set of recommendations that applies globally.
