EBV and COVID

As we delve further into the aftermath of the worldwide, COVID-19 pandemic, we are discovering new links and connections all the time. One of the most surprising and impactful results of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic was is the emergence of Post-COVID Syndrome in some people, and not others. Now, about 30% of the population reports that they experience lingering symptoms long after their COVID infections have resolved. For some, the symptoms have been life-changing and debilitating.

Beyond that, several studies have found a link between COVID and Epstein-Barr VirusThe results are showing a pattern of EBV reactivation caused by a COVID infection.

Knowledge

One study cites:

55.2% COVID-19 patients had positive VCA IgM antibody, indicating a high incidence of EBV coinfection in COVID-19 patients… the prevalence and levels of EBV viremia in COVID-19 patients were significantly higher than those in non-COVID-19 patients.

Stress levels have also been linked to the duration and intensity of reactivated EBV infections, and may contribute the the symptoms experienced during a COVID infection.

Post-COVID Syndrome

Long COVID (or Post-COVID Syndrome or “PASC” post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2) is characterized by symptoms from an initial COVID infection lasting longer than 28 days. Also known as “long-haulers” or “long haul COVID”, symptoms can range from fatigue and joint pain to POTS and brain fog, and even more severe symptoms present as dysfunction in the cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological systems, and more.
