Specialists from the US National Institutes of Health have found that the human body can be a "repository" of coronavirus for a long period: the virus is able to multiply in tissues outside the respiratory system and stay in the body for more than seven months.

The results of a study by American scientists on the "vitality" of covid, published in the journal Nature.

According to experts, patients who have suffered a severe infection are especially severely affected by the consequences of lingering covid.

The consequences of such a long covid negatively affect many systems of the body: the vessels, heart, respiratory and nervous systems suffer from the action of the virus.

According to the autopsy results of 44 people who died from covid, scientists found that the infection spreads through the human body already in the initial stages of the disease and remains in the body for a long time. Elements of the RNA of the virus are found in many organs and tissues, including parts of the brain, even 230 days after the onset of the first symptoms.

"Scientists emphasized that there was practically no inflammation outside the lungs", - RBC reports.

In rare cases, covid can persist in the human body even for a year. However, such cases are not often recorded. As a rule, we are talking about patients with oncology and immune disorders.
