Abstract: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a RNA virus that emerged in 2019 and is associated with a variety of clinical phenotypes ranging from asymptomatic to more severe disease generally referred to as coronavirus disease (COVID-19). In some cases, patients are asymptomatic but, in some cases, patients became serious during active COVID-19 period. These days many patients especially those with comorbidities are experiencing many complications after the active COVID-19 period, and this is termed as post-COVID-19. These patients experienced other abnormalities such as dyspnea, cough, oxygen dependence, fibrotic lung changes, decreased diffusion capacity, and reduced endurance. Here we present a case of patient who developed several complications of post-COVID-19 one after one. First, he was admitted for COVID-19 and then discharged but after some days readmitted due to some complications such as hypoxia, and fall at home. This patient had developed deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, lung fibrosis, multiple organ failures etc. in the course of treatment period. Such types of cases are less where many of such complications occurs one after one.
