WHO calls for help for people with “long covid” – Man – Science and technology


According to the available data, one in four people with COVID-19 has symptoms for about a month after a positive test, and one in ten suffers from as many as twelve weeks.

One in ten people who become infected with the coronavirus suffers from persistent health problems even 12 weeks after the infection. This is pointed out by the European Office of the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge stated in this context that not much is known about the so-called “long covide”, but his “burden is real and serious”. He therefore called on European legislators to do more to recognize and treat him.

The so-called “long covid” may be accompanied by severe fatigue, chest pain, myocarditis, headache, forgetfulness, depression, olfactory loss, recurrent fever, diarrhea and ringing in the ears. According to available data, one in four people with COVID-19 has symptoms of about month after a positive test and every tenth of them suffers even up to twelve weeks.

Kluge also told reporters that the coronavirus was still spreading very rapidly in the European region, but said less than a million new cases had been added for the second week in a row and the spread was slowing.
