According to a new study, they found that nearly 1/3 of people who reported having mild cases of COVID-19 are still experiencing lingering symptoms up to nine months later.

Researchers from the University of Washington conducted a study with 177 adults who had laboratory confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. 11 of the participants were asymptomatic and another 16 had moderate or severe cases. 150 were outpatients with mild illness who didn't require hospitalization.

All participants filled out surveys about their lasting symptoms which were completed 3 to 9 months after their symptoms began.
