Long-term complications after coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are common in hospitalized patients, but the spectrum
of symptoms in milder cases needs further investigation. We conducted a long-term follow-up in a prospective cohort study
of 312 patients—247 home-isolated and 65 hospitalized—comprising 82% of total cases in Bergen during the first pandemic
wave in Norway. At 6 months, 61% (189/312) of all patients had persistent symptoms, which were independently associated
with severity of initial illness, increased convalescent antibody titers and pre-existing chronic lung disease. We found that 52%
(32/61) of home-isolated young adults, aged 16–30 years, had symptoms at 6 months, including loss of taste and/or smell
(28%, 17/61), fatigue (21%, 13/61), dyspnea (13%, 8/61), impaired concentration (13%, 8/61) and memory problems (11%,
7/61). Our findings that young, home-isolated adults with mild COVID-19 are at risk of long-lasting dyspnea and cognitive
symptoms highlight the importance of infection control measures, such as vaccination.

It is also my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an very long latency interval, which means that indication of the disease won’t emerge until eventually 30 to 50 years after the preliminary exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, that’s the most common sort and impacts the area within the lungs, may cause shortness of breath, chest pains, along with a persistent cough, which may lead to coughing up maintain.
