The Long-Covid aftershock

As coronavirus sweeps through the UK, the four administrations comfort themselves that the vaccination programme has largely broken the link between high infection rates and hospitalisations, and severe acute illness. However, is “Long Covid” now emerging as an equivalent threat in human and economic terms, with an estimated million people already affected by this sustained debilitating condition?
