Patients will be regularly monitored for their symptoms and will receive timely medical attention
Pune-based Apollo Clinic has started post-Covid recovery OPDs. The clinic will consist of a team of experts who will help these patients to deal with the aftermath of the infection, and get back on track.
Dr Ajay Gangoli, Medical Director, Apollo Health and Lifestyle, “There are many recovered COVID-19 patients who have complained about challenges and difficulties after getting infected and recovered. There are two phases, acute and chronic. Acute post-Covid is when people recover in three weeks and still exhibit symptoms till three months. Symptoms persisting after three months can be referred to as chronic post-Covid. Around 10 per cent of Covid patients exhibit ‘long Covid’ symptoms while fewer people may have symptoms over three months. Thus, a post-Covid recovery clinic including specialists is a boon for such patients. The patients will receive specialised care for their problems and will be able to restore their health by reducing morbidity and mortality. This clinic will be a one-stop solution for the patients to help them resume their normal life. The patients will be regularly monitored for their symptoms and will receive timely medical attention.”
