Since January 21, 2020, there have been 104,111,747 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States.

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. These symptoms can be severe and disabling.

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

Some patients fully recover from COVID-19 but are vulnerable to many types of associated health conditions as a result of the initial viral infection, known as “Post-COVID Conditions.” These conditions affect nearly every organ in the body and range from benign to life-threatening.

Pandemic Patients develops and publishes educational resources about COVID-19, long COVID, and Post-COVID Conditions. These resources are designed to raise awareness about COVID-19, educate patients and the public about COVID-19, help reduce the risk of infectious disease transmission, and connect patients and health care professionals with up-to-date information about COVID-19. The resources below are regularly updated to ensure that they reflect the best available information.
