Long Covid

See also Chronic fatigue

Changes in CD4 and CD8 cells [1] possibly similar or related to AIDS

Low CD4 have poor clinical outcome to covid-19, and covid appears to lower CD4 counts even more and faster than HIV [2]. Basically the diagrams in that paper show covid and hiv are nearly the same effect on the immune system besides opposite effects on CD8, IL17, Naive T cells and macrophage

Long covid sufferers have significantly reduced CD4 than people who recovered fully from the disease [3]

CD4 protect you from intracellular bacteria [4] so the likely cause of long covid is actually intracellular bacteria infection such as mycobacterium, listeria, brucella, etc.
