Even as India continues its battle against Coronavirus, post-COVID care is gaining more importance with hospitals setting up post-COVID care, telephonic or physical consultation. This development comes as India crossed 47 lakh COVID-19 cases and daily recoveries exceeding 70,000.
However, even as India's COVID-19 cases continue to soar, Health experts have observed that post-COVID-19 infection, a full recovery can be quite a challenge. Dr Anup Kumar, Professor and Head of Urology and Renal Transplant Department, Safdarjung hospital spoke to ANI and said that patients who have recovered from this disease complain of generalised fatigue and are not able to return to an absolutely normal level of well-being even after a long time since they had the infection.
"Post-COVID care is coming up across India. Recovered patients with their negative RTPCR test result are suffering from severe to mild weakness, skin rashes, headache, diarrhoea, mild pain in the abdomen which persists for long. Some patients also notice low-grade fever," said Dr Anup Kumar.
