1.3 million people in the UK are suffering from Long COVID, which is when symptoms persist after four weeks of having the virus. An international study revealed that there are over 200 different symptoms across 10 different organ systems – from fatigue to memory loss and blurred vision. There is currently no cure for Long COVID, but there is help to manage symptoms.
