In this letter to the British Medical Journal, a group of clinicians call for thorough assessment and investigation for patients with Long COVID, highlighting that many were initially advised to 'stay at home' and were unable to access usual care.
The authors note:
"Pathological consequences such as myocarditis or a thromboembolic episode may explain symptoms, and these have been noted to occur months after onset in long covid support groups. The medical profession needs to evolve rapid transformative pathways to deal with the long term sequelae of covid-19 that include full investigation of patients."
