With more than 122 million cases of COVID-19 reported globally, and with a growing second pandemic wave underway, the long-term consequences of COVID-19 are an urgent public health priority.1
An international survey of individuals with so-called long COVID reported a wide range of symptoms that persisted for months and resulted in substantial disability.2
Latest UK estimates from an unweighted sample of 9063 individuals with COVID-19 suggest that 22% of individuals still have symptoms 5 weeks after initial infection, and 10% still have symptoms at 12 weeks.3
People with long COVID have struggled to be heard, and it is encouraging that the scientific and medical communities are finally listening. In the UK, a five-point National Health Service plan has allocated £10 million to support sufferers of long COVID through specialist clinics and an online rehabilitation service, alongside £20 million for National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)-funded research.4
