How Long Until We Solve Long Covid?
What is Long Covid?
Long Covid describes a collection of lingering symptoms devastating the lives of many COVID-19 survivors.
The most frequent prolonged symptoms are persistent fatigue, brain fog, and depleted energy after even a minimal effort — having a profound impact on everyday functioning. Our models reflect that Long Covid affects an estimated 10-30% of people infected with SARS-CoV-2, including those who were asymptomatic. Researchers anticipate that many patients will have this disease for their lifetime.
Experts say the condition is a major public health concern, given the substantial impact it has on society, ranging from increased health care costs to economic and productivity losses.
