COVID-19 attacks a myriad of sites in the body. Even now the impact is still unknown as the virus appears to change and the symptoms increase. Sadly, the long-term side effects also continue to evolve, which puzzles most health officials.
People who appear to recover completely start to again feel unwell a week or two later. Many will even spike fevers which cause many medical professionals to fear re-infection. However, in most cases, the new fevers and side effects are simple lingering symptoms from the original COVID-19 diagnosis. Despite having symptoms, the individuals do not appear to be contagious.
