The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to symptoms lasting for weeks or months after a COVID-19 infection as post COVID-19 condition. Some studies have reported later symptoms in patients with a severe COVID-19 infection. For example, those who were hospitalized or needed intensive care during recovery. However, post COVID-19 condition may also occur for people with mild or asymptomatic infection who were asked to isolate at home during the infectious phase.
