Around one in five people have lingering side-effects of Covid-19 up to five weeks after initially falling sick, according to a big new analysis in the UK. Furthermore, around one in 10 people with Covid-19 appear to experience nagging symptoms for 12 weeks or longer.

The UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) has released preliminary information from its report on the prevalence of “long Covid,” the lingering impact of the coronavirus infection that can sometimes last for months. A number of other studies across the world have attempted to tackle this question before, but this new work is one of the biggest and most extensive investigations yet. The ONS says the report is “very much a work in progress" and still in its infancy, but it’s revealed some important insights into the mysterious phenomenon of long Covid.
