AllAfrica, "If you've had Covid-19 and your symptoms have not gotten better after about three months, then that is the trigger to seek care.

Symptoms to watch for are shortness of breath, cognitive dysfunction or 'brain fog', which is how it's commonly described, and symptoms around fatigue." While those are the three major clusters of infections to watch for, Diaz noted that others like chest pain, and loss of taste and smell have also been reported.

Answering a question on the kinds of neurological conditions caused by Long Covid that have been reported, Diaz said: "First, I want to give the reassurance that patients do get better.; seeking coordinated care is quite important.

On neurological symptoms, patients have reported difficulty concentrating and difficulty sleeping (along with loss of taste and smell), some reported getting dizzy when they stand up and hopefully healthcare specialists can work with patients with those symptoms to keep them functional and active."  .
