The Karnataka government has decided to constitute a special technical committee to study the long term effects of COVID-19 among people who have recovered from the infection.
The move comes after several patients in the State have returned back to hospitals reporting various health conditions even after they have recovered from the COVID-19 infection.
K. Sudhakar, Medical Education and COVID-19 in-charge Minister said that the committee will consist of medical experts. In a tweet, Dr. Sudhakar said the government will evaluate patients based on whether they had mild or severe symptoms with special focus on people with co-morbidities. “The medical experts team will also develop new strategies for clinical care to improve long term health of all those who recovered from COVID-19,” his tweet said. – The Hindu
