This study was limited only to a group of non-hospitalized patients who were recovering after mild or moderate infection from COVID-19, as it was shown that these patients were suffering from nervous and psychological disorders that needed medical supervision and care. Other viral diseases, such as infectious mononucleosis, measles, and hepatitis B, also have rare long-term consequences. COVID-19's long-term consequences remain unclear (as are many aspects of the acute disease). Survivors of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) have been shown to suffer long-term repercussions [1, 2].
Aims: The objective of this short questionnaire research was to see how often persistent signs and symptoms are for non-hospitalized COVID-19 infected people.
Methods: From January 19 to February 1, 2021, a short questionnaire research was conducted at Al-Razi Specialized Medical Center, Iraqi Red Crescent Branch, Baghdad, Iraq. 79 samples of both genders concerning the post-covid-19 disorders were randomly collected, excluding the patients admitted to the hospital due to acute and chronic states; the infectious state owing to other viral or bacterial causes; and also, all the results which were diagnosed as negative via the RT-PCR test, through the rapid tabulating and statistically processing. This study noted that there were some significant signs and symptoms in the mild and moderate cases of COVID-19 patients after full recovery from the disease that should be focused on. Al-Razi Specialized Medical Center (ARSMC) in Baghdad, Iraq's capital, approved and submitted this questionnaire.
The results: From this limited study, the results showed a high-frequency percentage of males, 18–34 years of age, with a high educational degree; the ABO group was A+; the illness period was more than 3 months with mild disease conditions; for those who were recovered after the viral disease, there were no signs and symptoms or with hair loss and insomnia as a high-frequency percentage.
Conclusion: These findings confirmed that several of the post-COVID-19 signs and symptoms referred to a variety of new medical diagnoses, including new neurological disorders, were diagnosed more commonly among those with a history of COVID-19 infection than those without the infection.
