Calls For More Long Covid Clinics To Be Set Up Nationally
There are calls for more long Covid clinics to be set up nationally.
Figures show there are around 114,000 people still suffering the effects of Covid-19, long after they’d initially contracted the virus, and recovered.
Symptoms of long Covid include extreme tiredness, shortness of breath and dizziness.
Esther-Mary D’Arcy is special adviser to the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists – she wants more clinics to help people suffering:
“It’s described as episodic, so it can have symptoms for a while and then it’s subside, and then it recurs. So people need access when they have these symptoms.”
