The WHO has released the first official definition of the disease, “postcovid-19”, after global consultations. This was done to encourage the treatment of patients.
Mexico City (apro). – The World Health Organization published the first official clinical definition for “post-covid-19” diseases. It was developed following global consultations and published.
The agency states that this emerging disease, also called “long-term Covid-19”, is caused by coronavirus infected people.
Janet Díaz, head of clinical management at the UN agency, explained that it usually “appears three months after the onset of covid-19. The symptoms last for at least two months and cannot easily be explained by any other diagnosis.
He stated that health professionals do not fully understand the disease and this hinders research and treatment. To that end, he said that the WHO has taken the decision to standardize clinical case definitions at a global level.
Dr. Diaz spoke at the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva and stressed that these symptoms include fatigue, shortness, cognitive dysfunction, and any other symptoms that can affect daily functioning.
The symptoms may return after an acute attack or they may persist for a while. You may also experience symptoms that fluctuate or recur.
The definition was published by the health agency. It also stated that most Covid-19 patients can recover fully, but some patients have long-term effects on their bodies and lungs. Effect
He said that the effects of an initial infection can be severe or mild, and are more common for women, middle-aged, and people with more symptoms.
Diaz said that the new definition was an “important” step in standardizing the identification process for patients with this disease. She also stated that the United Nations agency hopes the system will help doctors and nurses identify patients and initiate treatment. Appropriate interventions and clear steps We hope that policy makers and health systems will establish and apply a comprehensive health model to care for these patients.”
There are many tests to detect Covid-19, but this condition is not always obvious.
“Is the virus still present, or is it microthrombosis? Or is there a problem with our vascular system?” Dr. Diaz asked the question and gave an overview of some of the research being done in this field. Is there an autoimmune problem?” Is the immune system dysfunctional and causing symptoms?
Here is a comprehensive description of the post-COVID-19 environment:
“Post-covid-19 symptoms occur in people with a history or possible SARS-CoV-2 infections. Symptoms last for at least two years and there is no other diagnosis.
“Feelings include shortness and fatigue as well cognitive dysfunction. But there are also other symptoms that may affect daily functioning. It is possible for symptoms to appear suddenly after an acute COVID-19 attack. The symptoms may fluctuate over time or recur. A different definition might apply to children.
