Support for Long Covid:

What’s the issue?

As we recover from the acute impacts of COVID-19, a new chronic impact has begun to gain attention. Most people who develop COVID-19 resume a normal life about two weeks after their illness. However, some individuals experience long-term symptoms including cognitive issues, like brain fog, headaches, dizziness, anxiety, and/or persistent respiratory symptoms. These symptoms have been grouped together and called ‘Long Covid’. Unfortunately, the long-term impacts on lung health and support for management and/or treatment for those suffering largely remains unclear.

A full recovery requires significant dedicated funding to better understand how to diagnose, manage, and treat the symptoms associated with Long Covid.

What do we recommend?

Commit dedicated funding for research on lung health and the long-term impacts of COVID-19.
