Several Long Covid cases where symptoms persist after recovery have been detected in Vietnam, some even after being vaccinated.


Tuyen and his wife, who live in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1, are still coughing and feel ringing in their ears two weeks after they recovered from Covid-19. Their health has never been the same since they contracted the disease, the couple said.


Last month, the family of four were found to be infected after developing typical symptoms like coughing, fever, headache, fatigue and losing their sense of smell and taste. The entire family was quarantined in a centralized facility, where they fortunately recovered with no severe symptoms.


While the two daughters, one in secondary school and the other in university, have made full recoveries, their parents do not feel the same. Their bodies have seemingly weakened, even after the virus has left the system.
