The National Health Action party is pleased to announce
Health Action Seminar from 6.45 pm to 8pm on Wednesday 15th June, 2022.
Topic: Long Covid
Speaker: Dr Deepti Gurdasani
Dr Gurdasani is a leading epidemiologist and geneticist. She has an international reputation for the study of many infectious diseases, with publications in Nature, Science, The Lancet and other top international journals. Most recently, she has made important contributions in the study of Long Covid.
Long Covid is a term for symptoms that occur some time after the initial Covid-19 infection. So far, over two hundred symptoms have been catalogued for Long Covid, though not all occur in all individuals. Symptoms have been recorded in all organs in the body. What can we conclude about the future prevalence and persistence of Long Covid symptoms, and what policies can we put in place to minimise their occurrence and their effects? Could the UK government do better in its approach to Long Covid?
