Medico-legal articles

A/Prof Cristina Morganti-Kossmann

As I am currently recovering from COVID infection, it is very likely that one of the omicron variants is the culprit of my malaise. The symptoms were mild, however, I felt sick and fatigued for about a week since having a positive rapid antigen test (RAT). Interestingly, symptoms changed almost every day from a scratchy throat, lower back pain and a runny nose. The question is whether I will develop long COVID later. In fact, long COVID does not require a severe illness or hospitalisation to occur, because even a mild illness has been shown to produce prolonged symptoms lasting weeks post-infection.
