The Challenge of Studying Long COVID: An Updated Review

Published inThe Pediatric infectious disease journal, vol. 41, no. 5, p. 424-426
Publication date2022-05-01
Abstract

Accurately determining the risk of long COVID is challenging. Existing studies in children and adolescents have considerable limitations and distinguishing long-term SARS-CoV-2 infection-associated symptoms from pandemic-related symptoms is difficult. Over half of individuals in this age group, irrespective of COVID-19, report physical and psychologic symptoms, highlighting the impact of the pandemic. More robust data is needed to inform policy decisions.
