When Symptoms Don't Stop

last modified Jan 22, 2021 11:18 AM
Treating those most severely affected by COVID-19 has necessarily taken priority during the pandemic. But could long COVID be the next wave of the crisis?

One of the problems facing GPs is that there’s no test available to diagnose long COVID. Many people who got ill early in the pandemic could not access a COVID-19 test, and testing them now gives negative results. It’s the same with the antibody test - too much time has elapsed since the suspected time of infection. Despite this, a Facebook support group for long COVID sufferers in the UK currently has around 33,000 members. Is long COVID a real condition?
