Japan, Long Covid data
Data from the recent survey conducted by the medical institutions of the Satagaya district of Tokyo show that 48.1% of the 9,000 people observed suffer from persistent olfactory disturbances and a sense of acute malaise, even after complete recovery from Covid-19.
The survey covered a large sample of the population, including both people who had developed severe symptoms and mild or no symptoms.
By age group, the most affected category appears to be the 30-50 year olds, for whom the percentage exceeds 50%.
