What to expect during recovery
Everyone will have a different experience in their recovery from COVID-19. Some people may recover in days, some in weeks; for others, it could be months. People recovering from more severe initial illness are likely to face a longer recovery period.
Schedule regular appointments with your GP to discuss your symptoms and how best to manage them. Your GP will tell you about any medicines that might suit your needs. They may also refer you to other medical specialists or allied health services (for example, dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists) if appropriate.
