It seems that 15% of patients/children, who have had COVID-19 (also without symptoms) later on have some "Long Covid" symptoms now. It is not fully clarified, if these were real "long Covid" symptoms or in part also issues regarding "lockdown" e.g.
There was also interviews with one case of a German women national basketball team (U 16) member, who is now not even able to perform the normal live regarding fatigue (and we are not talking about of any form of sport) of "long Covid".
As seen yesterday on TV, no written source available.
Another story; one of my work colleges has had serious COVID 19 over Christmas time. She is really young, has always performed sport e.g. She has had a sport accident 2 years ago, has had a surgery (the next one) regarding this one and was in a recovery clinic, when she got serious ill with COVID 19, interestingly without any problems with her lung. .But she was not able to move for around 10 days (she could not even sit in her bed for around ten days, this was already too much) and has had a serious "neuro covid" symptoms, full package.
She has now the typical "long covid" symptoms, fatigue (bad but not so bad as others), but still really bad: "neuro Covid" symptoms. She has now a more or less complete "short-term memory loss", next to fatigue and partial hearing loss, these were the worst one of her up to date symptoms.
She was recently working for around two weeks in her job again and is now for long time in the next recovery clinic, now for her long Covid symptoms.
In these two weeks. she was working....she has made many mistakes.
I fear not to see her ever again in her job, because she is just not any more able to do it.
Could this be related to some mutations that we haven't been paying attentions on?
First, in Germany the UK Covid strain is now the regular identified strain. Already around one week ago, around 75% of all new identified cases were reagarding the UK strain. So now, it will be even more worse. All other strains (like the Brasil strain) have no importance.
Regarding long Covid cases in children; these were 3 month or 6 month results. so no, for these results, the original strain was responsible as there were no UK strain cases in German >3 month ago.
It is known and has been also shown in Germany now, the UK strain is more dangerous, more letal e.g. This is also the reason why we see more and more cases of younger people in German intensive care units.
And it is also more dangerous for children.
