    We’re no longer in a national lockdown and life feels as though it is slowly getting back to normal, but for those who contracted COVID-19 and are still living with the debilitating consequences of the virus, the battle is far from won. With almost 400,000 UK adults experiencing the prevailing symptoms of COVID-19 over a year after first contracting the virus, Long Covid continues to remain on the agenda as a pressing and pertinent issue. This webinar from National Voices explores a person-centred response to Long Covid. This webinar event emerges as a sub-section of National Voices’ larg

    "Post COVID-19 condition occurs in individuals with a history of probable or confirmed SARS CoV-2 infection, usually 3 months from the onset of COVID-19 with symptoms and that last for at least 2 months and cannot be explained by an alternative diagnosis. Common symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, cognitive dysfunction but also others and generally have an impact on everyday functioning. Symptoms may be new onset following initial recovery from an acute COVID-19 episode or persist from the initial illness. Symptoms may also fluctuate or relapse over time."

    More than one in ten secondary school pupils and over a third of school staff who had COVID-19 have suffered ongoing symptoms, figures suggest. The most common symptom reported by staff and pupils was weakness/tiredness, while staff were more likely to experience shortness of breath than pupils, according to a small study of schools in England. The survey from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimates that about 35.7% of staff and 12.3% of secondary school pupils with a previously confirmed Covid-19 infection reported experiencing ongoing symptoms more than four weeks from t

    Researchers surveyed 3,065 11- to 17-year-olds in England who tested positive for Covid-19 in a PCR test between January and March. They also surveyed a matched control group of 3,739 11- to 17-year-olds who tested negative over the same period. Initial results show that, 15 weeks after their positive test: 14% more young people in the test positive group had three or more symptoms of ill health than the test negative group 7% more young people in the test positive group had five or more symptoms of ill health than the test negative group.

    One in 40 people with coronavirus has symptoms lasting at least three months, Office for National Statistics figures suggest. In April, an ONS report put the proportion at about one in every 10. The latest, large and comprehensive analysis suggests long Covid may be less common than previously thought. But the condition is not fully understood and still has no universally agreed definition, leading to different studies producing different figures. However, like many other reports, the analysis suggests women, 50- to 69-year-olds and people with other long-term health conditions

    In recent months, long Covid has received a great deal of media and public attention. Research has found that as many as one in four of those infected with Covid suffer from chronic long-term symptoms, including headaches, dizziness, abdominal pain, heart problems, fatigue, anxiety, depression, cognitive impairment and other conditions. It is a difficult and complex illness, and we must do much more to help those who are struggling with it. At the same time, it is important to realise that rather than being a strange special case, long Covid is probably part of a broader phenomenon that a

    Qualitative analysis revealed the following themes: mixed views on the appropriateness of the term ‘brain fog’ rich descriptions of the experience of neurocognitive impairments (especially executive function, attention, memory and language), accounts of how the illness fluctuated—and in some but not all cases, resolved—over time the profound psychosocial impact of the condition on relationships, personal and professional identity; self-perceptions of guilt, shame and stigma strategies used for self-management; challenges accessing and navigating the healthcare system

    Dr Kelly Fearnley caught COVID-19 in November 2020, after being redeployed to work on a coronavirus ward. Ten months on, she’s still living with debilitating symptoms of the condition known as long Covid. The latest estimates, published in June, suggest more than two million people in the UK have had long Covid since the pandemic began, while figures released by the Office for National Statistics in April show that more than 120,000 of those are NHS staff. Dr Fearnley discusses with iNews her experience of being taken to hospital after becoming seriously unwell. Dr Fearnley had a hig

    Experts have said the risk of "long Covid" in children is much lower than many had feared, with research suggesting somewhere between 2% and 14% still had symptoms caused by Covid 15 weeks later. However, while the research team found little evidence to showing huge number seeking help for symptoms that had left them bedridden or unable to attend school, it was still important that they received support if they had any persistent symptoms such as headaches, tiredness and breathing difficulties. Prof Sir Terence Stephenson, from UCL's Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, sa

    Young people experiencing long Covid have urged people to get their vaccine in a new NHS video, featuring three previously healthy people in their early 20s and 30s. Quincy Dwamena, a 31 year-old a support worker, described himself in the video as a “healthy young guy”, warned “I ended up being hospitalised and thought I was going to die. My advice is to get the vaccine: don’t put yourself and others at risk, I wish I’d got mine as soon as it was offered.” Data from Public Health England has shown young people aged 16 to 29 at more likely to develop long Covid, however, vaccine uptak

    A new report has found tens of thousands of children are suffering from Long Covid, with experts worried children will be left vulnerable if the vaccine roll-out does not expand to include the 12-15 year old age group. Experts have also warned herd immunity cannot be achieved without the young people taking the jab. "There is no time to waste in getting on with this. We could have had all of this age group [16- and 17-year-olds] vaccinated before September." Said Dr Deepti Gurdasani, an epidemiologist at Queen Mary University London. Read full story.

    According to research by King's College scientists, children who become ill with Covid-19 rarely experience long-term symptoms. The study was conducted using data provided by the Zoe Covid Study App and looked at 1,734 children, aged between five and 17 who had been reported to have tested positive for the virus between September 2020 and February 2021, with the most common long-term symptoms being found to be headaches and tiredness. "This study is reassuring for the majority of children and young people who develop Sars-CoV-2 infection, and reflects what paediatricians are seeing

    Researchers from the 'Therapies for Long COVID (TLC) Study Group' at the University of Birmingham are studying long COVID is and what influences it by pooling data from lots of separate studies to find out the prevalence of reported symptoms and to see what the impacts and complications of long COVID are. Their review showed just how varied long COVID is. Patients may experience symptoms related to any system in the body – including respiratory, neurological and gastroenterological symptoms. The pooled data showed that the ten most commonly reported symptoms in long COVID are fatigue, sho
