Going Viral: Post COVID-19 health sequelae – what GPs need to know


In this episode:


– A substantial proportion of those who have had COVID-19, experience health issues many weeks and months after the acute infection
– As part of the clinical approach, ask about level of energy and general function, “brain fog” …mental clarity and general pain
– Mental health, shortness of breath are important issues to monitor for
– It will be a multidisciplinary challenge and specialist opinion will often be needed, but GPs will be central players in this process
