Spanish groups issue guidance for long-term COVID response

By staff writers

May 7, 2021 -- A total of 48 scientific, medical, and patient groups in Spain -- including the Spanish Society of Medical Radiology (SERAM) -- have come together to develop and agree on a clinical guide for the care of long-term COVID-19 patients.

The objective of the groups is to offer a better response to patients with long-term COVID-19. The collaborative project was officially presented on 6 May after being sent to the main health institutions of Spain and the Department of Public Health of the World Health Organization.

The document addresses the care of patients suffering from persistent COVID or long COVID, people who have signs and symptoms that develop during or after an infection, with symptoms continuing for more than four to 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.

The clinical guide is aimed at healthcare professionals who participate in the planning and provision of services to those affected by long COVID.
