Our initial rapid symptom survey was completed in January 2021 before Long Covid was widely recognised in children; to provide early evidence of Long Covid symptom prevalence and aid our calls for paediatric Long Covid clinics & improved indoor air quality and mitigations in schools.
Our second study was published in March 2021: Clinical Characteristics, Activity Levels and Mental Health Problems in Children with Long Covid
Emerging global paediatric Long Covid research now supports our early findings.
Since the start of the pandemic we have shone a light on the symptoms children experience to raise awareness.
Images displayed show symptoms that children in our have experienced after SARS-CoV-2 infection.
