Background: The world these days still facing the COVID-19 pandemic, that mainly caused by the novel virus SARS-CoV-2. Reports show that the first cases of the virus were observed in Wuhan, Hubei, China. At first most cases compline of respiratory symptoms and sometimes respiratory distress that causes death in some cases. However, the disease shows its effect on other systems, including the cardiovascular, central nervous and gastrointestinal. As time passed with the pandemic many strains of the virus started to appear that caused the variation of symptoms severity, types and disease spreading. Covid-19 long term consequences these days remain unclear, due to the lack of research on this topic in the whole world and especially in the middle east, so our research was directed to gather more information about the topic and to see if there is a significant complication. Our retrospective study was directed toward Palestinians who were confirmed to be infected with covid-19 by The Palestinian Health Ministry in (25th November to 15th December 2020) and to see the long-term manifestation on them.
