What do we know so far?

With high rates of infection but low rates of hospitalisations and deaths, our COVID concerns are shifting now that more and more of us are getting both vaccines. The long-term issues caused by COVID infection can be debilitating for some.

Our expert panel will discuss what we mean by long COVID, who is more susceptible to it, and what the implications could be going forward.
