October 21, 2020

CNN (10/21, Reynolds) reports, “Older people, women and those with a wide range of symptoms in the first week of their illness appear to be most likely to develop ‘long Covid,’ according to a preprint paper posted online by researchers at King’s College London on Wednesday.” In a news release, Dr. Claire Steves, clinical academic and senior author from King’s College, said, “It’s important we use the knowledge we have gained from the first wave in the pandemic to reduce the long-term impact of the second. This should pave the way for trials of early interventions to reduce the long term effects.”
