Most COVID-19 Patients Experience Insomnia Long After Recovering from the Infection

According to a new study, many people experience lingering insomnia after recovering from COVID-19. While previous research has shown that more severe COVID-19 can cause insomnia weeks post-infection, this study focused on mild cases. Among adults who had COVID-19 in the previous 6 months but were not hospitalized, 76% reported new sleep disturbances. None of the study participants had a history of sleep problems. About half of the participants said they woke up in the middle of the night more than in the past. One-third of the patients found it harder to fall asleep, and reported lower sleep quality as well as shorter total hours of sleep.
