Corona research: Long Covid expert Prüß: “I am optimistic that there will soon be effective therapies for many of those affected”

Patients with Long Covid symptoms have symptoms such as chronic fatigue, shortness of breath, brain fog or palpitations. They have a hard time finding help. The waiting list at the Charité is also long. Can the doctors work through them gradually or are there still new cases coming in? New patients are still coming in, albeit slightly fewer than with the original virus variants. Nevertheless, there are still around 1,000 patients on the waiting list for our neurological Long Covid outpatient clinic. It can often take six months to get an appointment, unless it is really urgent. This is still an unsatisfactory situation for everyone involved.
