Pandemic Patients a 501(c)(3) non-profit patient advocacy organization with one mission: To relieve the harm caused by COVID-19 and Post-COVID Conditions. We are working to ensure that those affected by COVID-19 receive the support and services they need to live their best lives. 

Since January 21, 2020, there have been 100,493,342 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States.

A global analysis published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases on April 26, 2022, estimates that 49 percent of patients will continue to experience COVID-19 symptoms 120 days after infection. These persistent symptoms, referred to as “long COVID,” include fatigue, difficulty breathing, pain, cognitive dysfunction, and many others.

Current research suggests that the risk of developing persistent symptoms increases each time a person is infected with COVID-19.

Long COVID symptoms can be severe and disabling.

The Brookings Institution published a report on August 24, 2022, which estimated that 16 million Americans are currently experiencing long COVID. This report also estimated that between 2 to 4 million Americans are experiencing symptoms so severe that they cannot work. The lost wages of 4 million missing American workers exceeds $200 billion per year.

On July 16, 2022, a Harvard economist estimated that the cost of medical care and lost quality of life associated with long COVID exceeds $500 billion per year.

Pandemic Patients is here to help.

We strive to improve the lives of COVID-19 patients and survivors by raising awareness about COVID-19, providing individual assistance to patients, advocating on their behalf at the state and national level, and publishing educational resources for patients, policymakers, and the public.
