A new study shows that long-term COVID patients are suffering from abnormalities in their lungs but this condition cannot be detected with only routine tests. As reported, the researchers discovered that some patients who have never been in the hospital and did not have an acute illness during the infection stage are still experiencing difficulty in breathing, even one-year post the initial diagnosis.

The lung abnormalities were detected using xenon MRI scans. The CT scans and other lung function tests usually show normal in these patients, however, when these patients breathe, there is significantly impaired gas transfer from the lungs to the bloodstream. At this point, the researchers are collecting data on how many patients are impacted in this regard and are in search of an effective treatment.
