Long-COVID and associated symptoms might be more common than we realized. A new analysis by the U-M School of Public Health found that 43 percent of those infected worldwide with COVID-19 experienced post-COVID conditions. Bhramar Mukherjee, the John D. Kalbfleisch Collegiate Professor and Chair of Biostatistics at the School of Public Health and senior author of the study, shares that fatigue and memory problems were the two most common post-COVID conditions. Researchers highlight the key findings of their analysis and suggest that understanding the prevalence of long-COVID can better prepare healthcare professionals and systems.
