​Director of Public Health warns of the dangers of 'Long Covid'

The Director of Public Health has said there are people in Gibraltar who have had covid-19 who are suffering longer term consequences such as blood clots.

Dr Sohail Bhatti has called for vigilance, saying just because someone was not admitted to hospital, it does not necessarily mean there won’t be anything wrong with them.

He first reflected on the loss of life in recent weeks.
