Dr Anthony Fauci: long Covid represents an 'insidious' public health emergency

Fauci said the cold fact that Covid-19 still kills 400 people a day in the US catches public attention more acutely than estimates of the millions suffering from long Covid.

America’s top infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci has warned against prematurely declaring victory over the pandemic and said that long Covid represents an “insidious” public health emergency for millions of people.

In an interview with the Guardian, Fauci urged US Congress to avoid complacency and resume funding to combat the virus as well as long Covid, a chronic and prolonged illness that continues to elude scientists and healthcare providers.

Fauci said the cold fact that Covid-19 still kills 400 people a day in the US catches public attention more acutely than estimates of the millions suffering from long Covid.

The World Health Organization believes that between 10% and 20% of Covid-19 survivors have been left with lasting symptoms including breathlessness, fatigue and cognitive dysfunction that can persist long after the acute infection has resolved.
