You may have heard the term “Long COVID” or “brain fog”. Large numbers of people who have recovered from COVID-19 continue to experience a cluster of symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and can include things like fatigue, fevers, gastrointestinal distress, and more. These effects are now being referred to as Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection, or PASC for short.
Hear from patients and clinicians about PASC in the video below.
The University of Illinois at Chicago has been selected to lead an Illinois-based team for the U.S. RECOVER consortium. RECOVER is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) initiative that aims to understand, treat, and prevent PASC. Read more here.
