How Long Until We Solve Long Covid?
What is Long Covid?
Up to 30% of Covid-19 survivors develop Long Covid, a broad range of debilitating symptoms like crippling fatigue, brain fog, severe exhaustion after mild exertion, shortness of breath, heart issues, etc. We don’t yet understand what causes Long Covid, nor do we know how to fully treat it. So, for now, Long Covid can be lifelong.
What Can I Do to Help?
The Solve Long Covid Initiative will continue to raise the question of “How Long?” to government officials, researchers, doctors and pharmaceutical companies until Long Covid is no longer. Here are four ways to get involved:
Spread the Word About the “How Long?” Campaign
Reinforce the need for research. Help us make our Long Covid public service announcement go viral! Share this video with your friends, family, employers, and online community.
Support Our Work to Solve Long Covid
Fund research efforts to find treatments and cures, advocacy on Capitol Hill and our national advertising campaign to generate awareness of the disease.
If you or someone you love is living with and managing Long Covid, we know you have questions. Below are links to information about some of our most commonly asked questions.
