Long covid, the name commonly used to explain lasting effects of covid-19, may actually be four different syndromes, according to a review by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).1 A team of researchers and doctors reviewed current evidence and interviewed post-hospitalised and non-hospitalised patients and reported that long covid did not seem to fit as one syndrome. They suggested that people experiencing long term effects of covid-19 may have different syndromes such as post… 

Long COVID-19 Syndrome, A Prolonged Misery

TLDR
A previously healthy, stage 2 CO VID-19 patient who experiences prolonged symptoms of cough, chest pain, including anxiety and limited physical activities months after the first COVID-19 symptoms is presented.

Therapies for Long COVID in non-hospitalised individuals - from symptoms, patient-reported outcomes, and immunology to targeted therapies (The TLC Study): Study protocol

TLDR
The symptom burden and underlying pathophysiology of Long COVID syndromes in non-hospitalised individuals and potential therapies are evaluated to establish the evidence base for appropriate therapies and recommend interventions for each newly characterised Long CO VID syndrome.

Post-COVID-19 sequelae or persistent COVID-19 disease

TLDR
The post-CO VID-19 syndrome is an umbrella term for a complex, multisystemic disease that immediately or even after apparent recovery follows the acute phase of COVID-19, irrespective of severity.

Setting Priorities to Address Research Gaps in Long-term COVID-19 Outcomes in Children.

TLDR
Large, harmonized longitudinal studies assessing aspects of SARS-CoV-2 infection sequelae in children and adolescents are needed, and well-defined characterization of symptoms, signs, psychological features, and protective factors in children in different settings are needed.

Post-COVID-19 Syndrome and the Potential Benefits of Exercise

TLDR
A narrative review summarizes the up-to-date evidence on post-COVID-19 syndrome to contribute to a better knowledge of the disease and explains how regular exercise may improve many of these symptoms and could reduce the long-term effects of CO VID-19.

Association between Long COVID and Overweight/Obesity

TLDR
High BMI and previous pulmonary disease could be risk factors for 35-LC development in exposed HCWs, an emerging problem for hospital managers as it may reduce the number of HCWs deployed in the fight against COVID-19.

Unraveling the Mystery Surrounding Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is believed to be largely responsible for the appearance of these lasting symptoms, possibly through facilitating an ongoing inflammatory process.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome post coronavirus disease 2019

TLDR
A 14-year-old boy with well controlled asthma, controlled by a long-acting muscarinic antagonist, long- acting beta-agonist, and corticosteroid inhaler, was admitted to the authors' hospital for severe fatigue and appetite loss and was diagnosed with ME/CFS due to long-COVID.

European Respiratory Society statement on long COVID follow-up

TLDR
Overall, the evidence for follow-up care for patients with long COVID is limited and more evidence and research is emerging to understand the causes, mechanisms and risks of long CO VID consequences.

Deciphering Long Covid: Next Emergent Healthcare Dilemma

Objective: To determine the prevalence of Long Haul COVID–19 Syndrome among Pakistani Population. Methods: This cross-sectional analytical study was conducted after approval from the ethical review
