MiscellaneousBy Onlymyhealth editorial teamFeb 16, 2021

No one has ever seen a disaster like a coronavirus in the world. Corona infection continues to spread, but many infected people are also recovering without the vaccine. The recovery rate in India is decreasing compared to before, which is a piece of comforting news. But whether corona patients recovered entirely after healing, the question arises in everyone's mind. Let us try to find the answers to these questions.

Fatigue occurs after a viral infection

A viral infection breaks down proteins present in the body, causing damage to body cells. This makes the cells weak. This is why the body feels tired and weak. Apart from this, the body's antibodies are also continuing fighting the virus, which destroys the body's energy. Doctors recommend patients take a high protein diet and drink plenty of water to get well soon.

Weakness remains after recovering from the corona

Those who have become corona infected and have recovered and return home also feel weakness for a long time. This fatigue in their body can last for about three to four weeks. This is post corona viral side effect. This effect is also called viral chronic fatigue syndrome. This syndrome is seen in patients with dengue, swine flu, and influenza, but it takes one to two weeks to recover. At the same time, patients recovering from the coronavirus take one month to recover from this syndrome. In patients, this fatigue can be both mental and physical. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a condition in which patients often lose their memory in mental stress or fatigue.
