  • Approximately 150 000 people are thought to be experiencing long-term Covid-19 symptoms in Sweden according to one estimate, but there are no specialists to diagnose them. 
  • There are now calls for research funding for 'long Covid' patients and multi-disciplinary clinics.
  • "We have not learned enough about this and the patients are being left on their own" says Åsa Kristoferson Hedlund, who has suffered with Covid symptoms for eight months.
