What is Long COVID?

Over 31 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the U.S., with well over 566,000 deaths.

About 10 – 20% of people who have COVID-19, including people who have only mild symptoms, do not fully recover. Many of these people experience a variety of symptoms for many months. This is being called “Long COVID.”

Three million or more people in the U.S. may develop Long COVID. In Massachusetts 60,000 - 100,000 people may have Long COVID.

Long COVID is a “post-viral” illness.
