‘Long COVID’ is a condition in which people continue to experience symptoms for more than 3 months after a COVID-19 infection. According to a recent survey done by the Public Health Agency of Canada, 14.8% of people go on to develop Long COVID after a COVID-19 infection. Of these people, approximately half (47%) experience symptoms for more than 1 year and 21% say their symptoms are often or always limiting their daily activities. 74% of these people have missed work due to their symptoms.
