Each subject completed the questionnaire 24 times between March 2020 and August 2021.

During that period, more than 4,200 of them, or 5.5%, reported their diagnosis.

More than 21% of infected people developed at least one new or worsening symptom three to five months after diagnosis.

However, about 9% of the uninfected control group reported similar conditions.

The study noted that this showed that 12.7% (about 1 in 8) of those diagnosed had long-term symptoms.

That study also recorded symptoms before and after infection, helping researchers identify which symptoms were caused by the COVID-19 virus.

The study found that common symptoms of “long-term COVID-19” include chest pain, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, loss of taste and smell, and general fatigue.
