Royal Society: Long Covid: an unfolding story
Thu 8 Apr 2021 at 18:00 to 19:00  
https://www.youtube.com/royalsociety

Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe would like to inform you of the following talk from The Royal Society on their You Tube channel titled "Long Covid: an unfolding story" hosted by Professor Brian Cox.

SUMMARY

With vaccination programmes underway across the globe, attention is turning to the longer-term impact of COVID-19 and in particular the condition termed 'long Covid'. Very little is known about the condition at the moment, despite some studies estimating that 1 in 20 are affected.

Large-scale research projects and population studies are now looking at the reported symptoms to understand what long Covid is, why some people are affected for months, and how we can treat it.

Join Professor Brian Cox as he talks to scientists working at the forefront of research into long Covid, and campaigners with personal experience of the devastating effect it can have on lives.

This event is part of a series of Royal Society events discussing the scientific response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Catch up with the first event on the Royal Society’s YouTube channel.
