Some who were infected with Covid-19 managed to recover from it but still report experiencing tiredness, shortness of breath and body pains.

These are some of the symptoms of long Covid despite being fully recovered from the Covid-19 infection.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for post-Covid infection yet so the best protection is still to get vaccinated and to get the booster shot to reduce the possibility of developing long Covid.
