Most people recover quickly and fully from a SARS-CoV-2 infection. However, some patients continue to experience symptoms weeks or even months after the acute stage of infection. This phenomenon is known as “Long Covid”. In order to better understand the science behind Long Covid, a large number of studies have been initiated at the national and international level. Experts will discuss the latest research at an international virtual podium discussion hosted by the Leopoldina. We cordially invite you to this event and would appreciate an announcement of this date in your medium.

This event is part of the Leopoldina’s “International Panel Series”, organised in cooperation with its international partners.

About the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina
As the German National Academy of Sciences, the Leopoldina provides independent science-based policy advice on matters relevant to society. To this end, the Academy develops interdisciplinary statements based on scientific findings. In these publications, options for action are outlined; making decisions, however, is the responsibility of democratically legitimized politicians. The experts who prepare the statements work in a voluntary and unbiased manner. The Leopoldina represents the German scientific community in the international academy dialogue. This includes advising the annual summits of Heads of State and Government of the G7 and G20 countries. With 1,600 members from more than 30 countries, the Leopoldina combines expertise from almost all research areas. Founded in 1652, it was appointed the National Academy of Sciences of Germany in 2008. The Leopoldina is committed to the common good.
