Long COVID, also known as post COVID syndrome is a scary phenomenon that is the newest thing to worry about, after the diagnosis and the ever-growing list of symptoms associated with the viral disease.

Known to impact one third of COVID patients after recovery, the symptoms, very much like COVID-19 can leave many in lingering pain, confusion and at the risk of chronic health problems.

While medical experts are still studying to find the link, what’s even more puzzling is that kids, as young as 6 are falling prey to the many risks associated with long COVID.

For an illness that’s not known to cause severe outcomes in children under the age of 16, the problem of long COVID will only make matters worse for kids, who also have to wait longer to get their hands on a vaccine.
