Abstract

The definition of Long COVID has varied throughout the pandemic. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has just produced a new definition of Long COVID, which they call ‘post COVID-19 condition’. They describe it as a syndrome that occurs in individuals with a history of probable or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, usually three months from the onset of COVID-19 with symptoms that last for at least two months and cannot be explained by an alternative diagnosis. 

The successful UK vaccination program means that although COVID rates are still relatively high, hospitalisations and deaths remain low. However, with tens of thousands of people still testing positive every day, this means around 900 new cases of Long COVID are developing on a daily basis, so it’s vital that we shift our focus to addressing this serious Long-term health problem.
