Chinese scientists from the city of Wuhan, from where the pandemic began to spread around the world, concluded that the symptoms of the coronavirus can appear within six months after recovery. This is stated in the results of a study published in the medical journal The Lancet.

Scientists made these conclusions during the observation of patients who were discharged from the Jin Yin-Tan Hospital (Wuhan, China) between January 7, 2020 and May 29, 2020.

The study involved 1,733 people hospitalized with Covid-19.
