Giacca said that such findings also showed “real problems” that COVID-19 survivors may face.

The results of his study came as more experts and doctor report the nature of COVID-19 to the parliament committee—including its behavior, treatments, vaccines, possibility of immunity, and why there is an emergence of it among minor ethnicities.
