GHA launching Long Covid study to gather data locally

The GHA is launching a study into Long Covid in Gibraltar.

It says it currently does not know how many people are suffering long-term effects of the virus locally but is looking to collect data on the subject.

International statistics show around 1 in 10 of those who have tested positive for Covid are affected - with a very broad range of symptoms listed- the main one being fatigue.

Involved in the research is General Practioner Roberta Meta, who is encouraging people to take part in the study. She spoke to Katy Docker. 

The GHA says it is getting in touch with people to take part in the anonymous study, but if you are interested email longcovidstudy@gha.gi
