Some people who have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can experience long-term effects from their infection, known as Long COVID.
Long COVID: Millions are still sick
Long COVID presents with a wide array of symptoms after first being infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. According to the CDC, Long COVID can last weeks, months, or years.
COVID-19 affects different people in different ways, ranging from mild symptoms to severe debilitating disease.
Millions are still sick, and they are waiting for answers.
Anywhere from 10% to 30% of people who had COVID-19 have lingering symptoms
fatigue muscle aches dysautonomia sleep disturbances brain fog
“…Anywhere from 10% to 30%—or more—have lingering symptoms well beyond what you would expect from any post-viral syndrome like influenza and others. It’s fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle aches, dysautonomia, sleep disturbances, and what people refer to as brain fog.”

OMF has already begun
a large-scale international study
Solely funded by private donors
We knew this was coming! Back at the beginning of the pandemic, OMF secured a $1 million grant to launch the first year of a three-year international study to follow and study those with COVID-19 as they either return to health or remain with symptoms months after being infected. The purpose was to learn what is different in people who stay ill. This project is being conducted across the globe at our OMF-supported Collaborative Research Centers, spearheaded by some of the world’s top researchers and ME/CFS experts.
We are actively working to raise additional funds for this critical study to continue. We all need this research now. We need your help today so that millions can return to health tomorrow.
Support Open Medicine Foundation’s quest to find effective treatments and diagnostic tests for the millions of people affected by these devastating diseases!
