what is long covid?
Long COVID is a longer, more complex form of COVID-19. It can also be referred to as 'Long Haul COVID' or 'Post-COVID Syndrome'.
As many as one in five people have COVID-19 symptoms after 5 weeks, and one in ten have extended symptoms for 12 weeks or longer.
The groups listed below have been influential in bringing awareness to the illness. Additionally, doctors, nurses, health care professionals and NHS staff who have struggled to fulfil their demanding roles due to long COVID, have called for formal guidelines to diagnose long COVID.
A recent article in the medical journal Lancet has also called for formal guidelines that would reflect the complexity of long COVID and that would help provide a formal diagnosis.
