Long COVID is a condition that is defined by a wide range of symptoms that some people experience after a COVID-19 infection. While most people get better after getting COVID-19, some experience a return of similar symptoms or develop new symptoms at least a month after getting better. These symptoms can linger for weeks, months, and even years.
