Long Covid

Long Covid has emerged as an ongoing condition whereby people who have contracted Covid-19 suffer the long term symptoms which sometimes persist for months.

Increasing medical evidence and patient testimony show that a number of people experiencing an initial COVID-19 infection and recovery, suffer relapsing tiredness amongst other symptoms.

Some estimates suggest that 10% of Covid patients may still be experiencing symptoms more than three weeks after infection, and perhaps 60,000 people could be suffering from Long Covid symptoms after more than three months.

These patients are not only those recovering from the severe form of the acute disease, (requiring hospitalisation in an intensive care unit), but also those who had mild and moderate disease.

A third of doctors have treated patients with long term Covid-19 symptoms (source: British Medical Association survey). The symptoms reported included chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, loss of sense of smell, and concentration difficulties.
