Study 01-03-2023

These proceedings summarise the presentations and discussions of the workshop on ‘long COVID’ organised for the European Parliament’s Special Committee on the COVID-19 pandemic on 9 March 2023. The six presentations touched, inter alia, upon the current state of knowledge on the disease’s clinical profile, potential causes and underlying mechanisms, impacts on patients and society, and lessons to be learned from post-acute infection syndromes and chronic diseases. The speakers and Members could discuss the urgent actions and financial support needed from the EU to close gaps in scientific knowledge, to raise awareness on long COVID, and to develop treatments which could improve patients’ condition.
