As the tumultuous months have tumbled on since the first national lockdown in March 2020, more has been discovered about the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Now, growing evidence exists of ‘long-Covid’ – when the symptoms are hard to shake off.
Dr Ravi Tomar, a GP partner at Portland Medical in Croydon, recognised “long-Covid” is “based mainly on anecdotal case report evidence”.
Dr Tomar continued: “Some evidence suggests long-Covid may actually be a mix of other known diagnoses such as post-viral fatigue syndrome, and post-intensive care syndrome among others.”
Yet to be classified as a condition, the research into longer-term consequences of COVID-19 are still ongoing.
