WHAT IS LONG COVID?
Long Covid is a patient-led term used to describe the long-lasting effects of Covid-19 infection.
Since NICE released its guidelines it is also known as Post Covid Syndrome. NICE breaks it down into 3 stages.
ACUTE COVID-19 INFECTION
Signs and symptoms of COVID-19 for up to 4 weeks.
Signs and symptoms of COVID-19 from 4 weeks up to 12 weeks
POST COVID SYNDROME
Signs and symptoms that develop during or following an infection consistent with COVID-19, continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.
