What are the long term effects of COVID-19 on my health?

We don't yet know the long-term consequences of COVID-19 on a person's health. Because older adults, and those with weak immune systems or underlying health problems are more likely to get infected and experience COVID-19 symptoms, it is likely that their chronic health conditions may be worsened by infection with COVID-19. Scientists are still actively studying the disease, but there have been a few case reports of patients becoming reinfected in other countries, highlighting the need for continued caution.
