UPMC in central Pennsylvania has launched a dedicated program to support people who experience persistent respiratory issues after a COVID-19 infection. Approximately one-third of patients continue to have difficulties and persistent symptoms after a COVID-19 diagnosis.

 “Following a COVID-19 infection, it’s not uncommon to suffer ongoing symptoms, such as shortness of breath, for weeks or even months,” said Taj Rahman, M.D., director of pulmonary medicine, UPMC Pinnacle. “While there is no cure for COVID, there are specific things we can do to help address symptoms, such as pulmonary rehab, to improve lung health and help with recovery.”
