Researchers at the University of Stellenbosch say they have found high levels of inflammatory micro particles in blood of individuals suffering from long-Covid.

Lead-researcher at the University’s Department of Physiological Science, professor Resia Pretorius say the micro-particles may be behind the persisting long-lasting symptoms of Covid-19, seen in patients recovering from the viral infection.

Pretorius spoke to eNCA this week and said the particles seem to inhibit the natural breakdown of blood-clots in the body.
