“Some patients fall between those recovering within 2-3 weeks and patients having long COVID. Those patients in the gap could be lumped into a middle-range COVID,” Mouhib Naddour, MD, a pulmonary specialist with Sharp HealthCare in San Diego, California. told a health journal.
“The majority of patients we’re seeing in this group could be healthy young patients who get COVID, then 2-3 weeks after they test negative, still have lingering symptoms,” he adds.
