A new poll conducted in December 2022 by Morning Consult on behalf of the de Beaumont Foundation, with the participation of 806 U.S. physicians, found that more than three in four (78%) thIN Long COVID is a problem, but only 7% are “very confident” diagnosing Long COVID and only 4% are very confident treating the condition.
The poll has several important implications for policymakers and the medical community:
– Physicians need much more training in diagnosing and treating Long COVID.
– Funding research about Long COVID should be a national priority, and has the support of 82% of physicians and 76% of the public.
– More public education is needed to overcome misinformation and the stigma of Long COVID.
