Description Description In a few short years, Long COVID has established itself as one of our most significant health issues, estimated to have affected millions worldwide – and studies suggest that number is rising.

Until now, the lack of understanding and information around this chronic condition has meant that people have largely suffered in silence.

Here for the first time is a comprehensive overview of the disease, written by Professor Steven Faux, one of Australia's leading experts on the treatment of Long COVID. Drawing on up-to-the-minute research, it includes:
  • Advice on diagnosis, key risk factors and prevention
  • The very latest on how to identify and manage symptoms
  • Tips for staying positive and dealing with uncertainty
  • An overview of treatment options, for the short- and long-term, to ensure ongoing health and recovery
  • PLUS case studies from Australians of all ages living with Long Covid.

This book is essential reading for those experiencing ongoing symptoms following a COVID-19 infection, their loved ones, and the thousands of health professionals trying to navigate this disease on behalf of their patients.
