While college managers and decision makers have emphasized that they are taking the Covid-19 pandemic and their health and safety concerns very seriously, there has been an underlying assumption: students, if they catch the disease, will be good .

"At least 80 percent of our population consists of young people, they say, 35 and less. All the data to date tell us that the Virus Covid-19, while transmitting quickly in this group Old, approaches the zero lethal threat to them, "said Mitch Daniels, the president of the University of Purdue, in a letter to the campus in April, expressing an intention to reopen. "Literally, our students pose a much greater danger to others of those who posed them by the virus".

New information released in the months since then, has complicated that image. The growing evidence suggests that some part of people who are infected with Covid-19 will continue to experience symptoms of the weeks of illness, or even months, even if they are young or have a slight case of the virus.

Although the persistent symptoms of Covid-19 have been written on anecdonists in the media and personal trials, the sharp grain that would generally conform scientific and medical knowledge on this condition is still being resolved. In a study of Italian patients, more than 87 percent still suffered from at least one symptom of Covid-19 an average of two months after its initial infection.

In a study of patients who tested positives for Covid-19, but they were not hospitalized, 35 percent said they had not returned to their usual health level an average of two weeks after their initial symptoms , including 26 percent of patients from 18 to 34. Another medical research has estimated that 10 percent of people infected with Covid-19 will continue to experience symptoms three weeks after their initial infection, with a smaller part of the Patients who experience symptoms for months.

Although each patient is different, many have reported difficulty breathing, low-grade fever. , coughing or weakening fatigue as persistent symptoms. Some patients have described the fatigue so difficult, they fought for walking through a room, getting out of bed or working in their previous occupation. Neurological symptoms, such as "cerebral fog", or an inability to focus or remember memories, have also been observed in patients weeks after their infections. Several healthy and serious adult accounts have described to be weakened by the virus and that it needs to take measures such as leaving college.

Critics of the decisions of colleges to reopen in person have argued that the long-term complications emphasize the neglect of those administrations and the potential consequences of their elections. A small study has suggested the potential of heart problems among university athletes who are infected, which increases concerns for decisions to continue soccer and other sports.

Although many universities have published their plans for quarantine, isolation and continuity of instruction. For students who obtain Covid-19, few have published options for students who can become "long carriers", are sometimes called patients with persistent symptoms. Some universities have had thousands of their students who prove possible, and current estimates suggest that they could soon see "long carriers" in significant numbers. In some cases, symptoms may require educational accommodation.

Mary Lee Vance, Director of Services for Students with Disabilities at California State University in Sacramento, said that in the future, schools will have the obligation to satisfy students suffering from persistent symptoms. It is likely that these accommodations are handled by an office of disability services at a university or university, although the condition can be temporary.

At the University of Cornell, Zebadiah Hall, Director of Student Disability Services, said students routinely receive 14-day accommodation for Covi
