Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


• For this update, we identified 50 published reviews and 56 new protocols for ongoing reviews on Long COVID. The number of published reviews is considerably larger than the total identified for our last quarterly report in October (n=29), which utilised the same databases and search strategy.
• Most published reviews were focused on the frequency or risk of persistent symptoms/effects, which has consistently been the case in all the reports we have produced to date.
• We identified more published reviews with a primary focus on Long COVID risk factors (10/50) than in October (1/29).
• A majority of the new protocols for ongoing reviews in the current update have a primary focus on Long COVID treatment/rehabilitation (n=33/56).
