Scientists are racing to understand the collection of symptoms that comprise “long COVID”—a set of persistent and sometimes severe health problems linked to prior infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
At SciLine’s next media briefing, three experts will describe what the latest research has found about the clinical manifestations of and risk factors for developing long COVID, including vulnerabilities for specific demographic groups; the strengths and limitations of peer-reviewed research on this topic—and what reporters should know and be careful about when covering long COVID; and the evolving menu of available medical interventions to treat and possibly prevent long COVID symptoms. Scientists will brief reporters and then take questions on the record.
