BMG Long COVID Initiative

Welcome to the website of the BMG Long COVID initiative

For a lot of people, COVID-19 has become a thing of the past. Unfortunately however, others are still suffering from the long-term effects of the infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. COVID-19 has fortunately ceased to be a pressing issue for many people. However, some people are still suffering from the after-effects of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Long COVID still poses a challenge to medicine and science, as well as to our society as a whole. We have launched the BMG-Long COVID initiative to ensure that patients suffering from the virus and their relatives receive the best possible support. This website is intended to be a contact point for people affected by Long COVID who are looking for answers, insights and help.
