There is no test to diagnose ‘long Covid’ yet, according to the Department of Health.

MANILA, Philippines – There is no test to detect protracted coronavirus illness (Covid), a syndrome in which Covid-19 symptoms last months after initial infection.

Long Covid symptoms, such as coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, joint pain, and others, can continue up to two months or longer, according to Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire in a virtual news briefing on Tuesday.

Long Covid is not contagious, but individuals who have it should see a doctor, especially if they have trouble breathing, severe chest discomfort, or pass out, according to Vergeire.

“Sa kasalukuyan, wala pa hong test para ma-diagnose ang long Covid,” she said, “so pinakamainam na magpatingin at magpakunsulta sa doctor o health care provider kung sakaling magkaroon ng mga ganitong sintomas upang mabigyan ng pangunahing lunas (As of now, there is no test to identify long

Because long Covid is acquired after a coronavirus exposure, getting immunized is one of the greatest strategies to prevent this sort of sickness, according to Vergeire.

“Batay sa isang Lancet study sa United Kingdom, nababawasan nang kalahating porsyento ang tsansang magkaroon ng long Covid ang indibidwal na nagka-Covid kung ito ay nakapagtapos ng kanyang primary series (Based on a Lancet study sa United Kingdom, having primary series of the vaccine )”

Long Covid is also known as long-haul Covid, post-acute Covid-19, and chronic Covid in various countries.

The Americans with Disabilities Act classifies this condition as a disability in the United States.
