Long COVID – One Year On
Long COVID is now a recognized complication of acute COVID-19 infection. As the COVID-19 pandemic moves into its third year, the prevalence of Long COVID continues to increase. Many individuals report symptoms lasting longer than a year, and a subset of this group is unable to work.
Long COVID – One Year On, authored by Munich Re’s Dr. Tim Meagher, was originally published by the Journal of Insurance Medicine. The article provides an update on Long COVID, with a particular focus on distinguishing it from other clinical entities. It reviews several proposed disease mechanisms and attempts to anticipate the impact on disability insurance.
