Post Covid19 check-up packages
Several people recovering from the COVID-19 virus are seen to be experiencing certain long-term complications (post-COVID syndrome) like headaches, fever, confusion, loss of smell or taste, short-term memory loss, allergies, stomach upset, ENT & eye problems, and prolonged breathlessness, among others. Given the concerns over the long-term impact of COVID, post-recovery monitoring of patients has become imperative for the benefit of people who have recovered from COVID, yet are still experiencing symptoms associated with it. Medica has introduced a post-COVID monitoring health check-up package with the view to preventing acute complications.
