What is long COVID?

Do you really know?

What is long COVID? Thanks for asking!

Even months after infection, some Covid-19 patients have continued to suffer from symptoms such as extreme fatigue, lack of sleep or breathing problems. And these are mostly people who have long been discharged from hospital, or never even went there in the first place. This form of the virus is generally multi-symptomatic and protean.

The term long Covid was actually coined by a group of infected patients, who experienced it during the first wave of the pandemic. They had to campaign for months to raise public awareness and draw greater attention from the medical community, getting it on the agenda for scientific research.

Does long Covid affect a high proportion of patients? How would I know if I had long Covid? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
