Doctor Warns Lung Damage From Coronavirus Could Be Long-Lasting

Health experts are warning that the lung damage caused by the coronavirus could last long after the virus itself is gone.

Dr. Brittany Bankhead-Kendall, a trauma surgeon in Texas, recently tweeted that “Post-Covid lungs look worse than ANY type of terrible smoker’s lungs we’ve ever seen” and that “the shortness of breath lingers on… & on…”.

Bankhead-Kendall says she fears the pandemic will “turn into years of pulmonary problems” for those who recover.

Do you know anyone who has recovered from COVID-19? How long did it take for their health to return to normal?
