COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has resulted in millions of infections and deaths and shows no signs of abating. Those infected with SARS-CoV-2, typically develop symptoms, including respiratory, renal, cardiac, enteric, or musculoskeletal, a few days after exposure. In contrast, in "long-COVID" (also termed Post COVID-19 syndrome), one or more symptoms is present even after the expected period of clinical recovery, with signs or symptoms persisting over 12 weeks [1]. Recovery from post COVID-19 is anticipated to take many months.
