Treating Long Covid

Dear Sir or Madam,

People who have recovered after a Corona infection are not always cured – you have heard this a lot. Many patients still experience symptoms weeks and months after infection. They have "Long Covid", a diffuse syndrome composed of many different, more or less debilitating ailments. Our health systems face an unprecedented challenge with their treatment. Learn in our current interview how we can prepare and how we can help affected patients.

Stay healthty!
