Research undertaken at Murdoch University’s Australian National Phenome Centre has added to the growing body of evidence that so-called ‘long-Covid’ may have more serious health consequences than COVID-19 itself. The research shows that people who have a strong immune response to the virus trigger a biochemical reaction that can result in long-term health problems, including heart disease and liver dysfunction. One of the researchers, Jeremy Nicholson, is still experiencing side-effects some 14 months after contracting COVID-19; he also developed type-2 diabetes after recovering from the virus.
