Long Covid: A call for global action

“Systems need to integrate Long Covid to track burden, recovery, and progression of patients. Although there is progress in identifying affected individuals through the newly introduced 2023 ICD-10-CM U09.9 (“Post-COVID-19 condition”), more health systems need to adopt this for harmonized reporting and better monitoring. Stronger and more effective public health communication and coordination are also needed: Individuals need to be informed about potential risks even among those who only experience mild symptoms, whereas providers should be up-to-date on developments on Long Covid management and treatment.”
