Long COVID’s impact on health systems

The European Commission has published an opinion by an independent Expert Panel on effective ways of investing in health on the impact of the post-COVID-19 (long COVID) condition on health systems.

The opinion is based on a review of the available evidence on what long COVID is and its probable causes and symptoms.

To reduce the burden, the independent expert panel’s recommendations include:

  • scale up research on potential treatments & involve patients in research
  • embed research at all levels of care, including rehabilitation
