After acute corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19), there have been increasing reports of persistent and long-term symptoms similar to the post- viral syndromes described in survivors of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or middle east respiratory syndrome (MERS). Here, we provide a comprehensive review of the current literature on long-term COVID-19 focusing on organ-specific sequelae. Many of the recovered COVID-19 patients may be affected by long-term health. The future for COVID-19 survivors remains uncertain, and well conducted long term research will be needed.
