HCMC – The Cho Ray Hospital in HCMC today, January 18, put into operation a clinic to treat those having long Covid.
Dr Le Trung Nhan, head of the Cho Ray Hospital’s medical examination department, said that the clinic would treat post-Covid syndrome and give guidance on nutrition and physical therapy to recovered Covid patients.
All Covid patients with no, mild or severe symptoms need their health to be monitored and assessed and to be treated for long Covid, Nhan said, adding that the hospital expected the clinic to offer effective treatment and care to patients after recovering from Covid.
Many Covid patients after several weeks of recovery reported suffering post-Covid effects, including breathing problems, fatigue, cough, anxiety and pulmonary fibrosis, Phap Luat Online reported, citing many studies.
As of January 16, HCMC had seen over 310,000 Covid patients recover from the disease. However, two-thirds of these patients have experienced long Covid within several weeks to months after recovering.
