While we might not be hearing the daily COVID numbers anymore, the virus hasn’t gone away. In the UK alone, thousands of new cases continue to be recorded every day.
Meanwhile, there’s a very large group of people for whom the virus hasn’t gone away in a different sense – those suffering with long COVID.
For these people, symptoms persist after the infection itself has passed (technically, beyond 12 weeks after infection).
The most common long COVID symptoms include fatigue, breathlessness and loss of sense of smell. But people experiencing long COVID report a whole range of symptoms.
