Suggested name, term or description
Post COVID-19 syndrome (please double check with clinical bodies)
Brief summary of the request
We would like to request concept(s) related to post COVID-19 syndrome or whatever the clinical community decide to call.
Description of the addition or change
My trust is the London COVID-19 centre and my respiratory consultants have expressed their view that currently there is a lack of post COVID-19 related concepts. These patients who either had COVID-19 (through confirmed PCR test) or a high suspicion of COVID-19. Nearly six months down the line, they started developing what they call “post COVID-19 syndrome”. Right now, we have been recording this using a list of the symptom concepts. You might want to work with the clinical bodies to author such concept request. We need it urgently as these patients is not just a few. It is significant numbers going forward.
