Management of post-acute covid-19 in primary care
Published: 8 September, 2020
Around 10% of patients who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 virus remain unwell beyond three weeks, and a smaller proportion for months. Post-acute covid-19 (“long covid”) seems to be a multisystem disease, sometimes occurring after a relatively mild acute illness. This BMJ Practice Pointer, intended for primary care clinicains, describes what is known about “long covid” and how to care for these patients in their own home.
