The above frequencies seem to fit with what is reported in the clinical literature.


Since this illness began clinically in China, here is a report of their early findings.


How this virus imparts such widespread damage has been studied.


Reports from the Pathology literature confirm the widespread involvement as well. 


And while findings from the Respiratory System are known to be dominant, a close second here is the Nervous System. CNS manifestations are presented here. And cerebral micro-structural changes here.

Epilepsy in relation to COVID-19 is possble, even if still reported as fairly rare.  


Clearly related to the topic of virally induced neuropathology, COVID-19 psychosis has been described, and the possibility of more extensive neuropsychiatric disease discussed here.


Addressing position 3 in our results, Cardiovascular System effects, here is a useful overview.


Effects on the Integument are perhaps less widely recognized. Those will be linked to here:


COVID-toeschilblains, acral lesions in children, and lividoid and purpuric eruptions. 


Genital and reproductive system effects appear in about 10% of the responses to this question.

Effects on spermatogenesis are known and appear with increasing frequency in the literature.


Our sample seems to have effectively captured the widespread effects of this novel viral illness.




The responses in Question 28, addressing Severity of Illness, concluded that the majority of respondents had a moderate illness. That, even if more than unpleasant, and lasting an unusual duration of 6.5 months on average in this sample, may actually be good news. Given the widespread organ system involvement, not only are the long lists of symptoms more readily believed, but a more important "dose" of the virus than that suggested in this sample, may have led to a less fortunate outcome. 


Those presenting with "long-term" COVID-19 will of course have a hard time identifying many "fortunate" aspects of the illness that they have been experiencing.
