Abstract:

COVID-19 is a recognized pathogen that causes severe acute respiratory related symptoms. There is an important percentage of people that experience important health problems even when they have recovered from the acute phase of the illness. In such patients, there is no coronavirus present in the system but illnesses continue to present complications. This study aims to probe the manifestations which appear after eradication of the infection in the Ecuadorian population and compare it to the symptoms presented by the Egyptian population : fatigue, anxiety, joint pain, continuous headache, chest pain and dyspnoea (Kamal et al. , 2020). This period is within 10 days after being diagnosed from COVID-19 or after being discharged. We believe the Ecuadorian population presents similar symptoms to the Egyptian after recovering from COVID-19. We conducted a survey in the general population of Quito where we asked about the symptoms present. Our results were similar to the Egypt study, symptoms percentages rank and absence of symptom percentage are mostly the same in the two studies. Knowing that the Ecuadorian population presents similar data as the Egyptian helps us conclude that regardless of the population, symptoms post-COVID are the same. We chose these two populations because the difference in ethnicity, age demographics and social-environmental conditions is considerable. These results open up to pursue this conjecture with a bigger study of different populations to confirm that this is the way SARS-coV-2 behaves post-infection. Furthermore, studies to open to more specificity such as variant differences in populations should be conducted to gain information to prove variant behavior generally.
