Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


• For this update, we identified 31 published reviews and 53 protocols for reviews on Long COVID. The number of published reviews is less than the number in our last quarterly report in April (n=37).
• Most published reviews were focused on the prevalence of symptoms or effects (16/31), which is consistent with the earlier reports.
• We identified more published reviews with a primary focus on Long COVID risk factors (6/31) than in April (3/37), and the same number on treatment or rehabilitation (n=5) for both reports.
• Most of the protocols focused on Long COVID treatment or rehabilitation (26/53), as was the case in the last two reports (29/73 and 33/56).
• Most of the other protocols focused on the prevalence of symptoms or effects (12/53), or risk factors with or without symptom prevalence (6/53).
