Long haulers

Some people with COVID-19 have symptoms that last for months or longer. They are sometimes called “long-haulers”, and long-term COVID-19 is also called PASC (post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2).

The most common long-term symptoms are:

  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cough
  • Joint pain
  • Chest pain

Long-term COVID-19 can happen to anyone, even if they didn’t have severe COVID-19 symptoms. The best way to prevent it is to avoid getting COVID-19 in the first place.
