3. Severity, length of illness and recovery from PASC
4. What the current research in PASC tells us about future directions and possible therapeutics

Description:
People who have COVID-19 can run the gamut of being severely ill, to being asymptomatic, or recovering completely within a few weeks. But some people, even those who had mild versions of the disease, continue to experience symptoms after their initial recovery. These people sometimes describe themselves as “long haulers” and the condition has been called “Long COVID-19” or more accurately now known as Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC). PASC is generally considered to be the effects of COVID-19 that persist for more than four weeks after diagnosis with the COVID-19 virus. It is a range of symptoms that can last weeks or months after first being infected with the virus or can appear weeks after infection. Join us for this webinar, where we explore what is scientifically known about this new condition from the data and research that we have at this time.
