About the event

Long COVID is a term to describe the long-term health effects of COVID-19 that persist for weeks or months after the typical convalescence period of the illness. In addition, significant short-term disruptions in care delivery were observed during the pandemic, which may have long-term consequences in morbidity and survival implications for patients and otherwise healthy individuals.

The Swiss Re Institute is hosting an Expert Forum on secondary COVID-19 impacts and invited leading experts to talk about the latest insights and findings of ongoing long-term secondary COVID-19-related health research. The experts will address the diagnosis, management, and prognosis of the most common lasting symptoms of COVID-19 and will present their view on long-term consequences of patients affected by deferred acute treatments and preventive diagnostics and in individuals suffering from mental health difficulties during extended lockdown periods.
