COVID-19 Long Covid

Long COVID is the term for the experience of symptoms that last weeks or months after the initial viral infection.

Studies to date show common symptoms include fatigue, breathlessness and (in more severe cases) organ failure, such as that of the heart and lungs.

Although there is no specific treatment for long COVID, there are positive signs that people are able to manage their symptoms by drawing on a range of sources such as online help, peer support, complementary therapies and formal health care

General guidance to help with Long Covid

Dr Sari Harenwall, Senior Clinical Psychologist and COVID Rehab Clinical Lead for the Primary Care Wellbeing Service at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and colleagues in Bradford have recorded a series of videos on how to manage your physical and mental health and wellbeing with Long Covid. These videos are also available to watch on YouTube
