GENEVA: The quest to unravel the mystery behind the Long Crowd took a step forward on Thursday with a concerted international effort to obtain standard data on the situation.
The World Health Organization and the International Severe Respiratory and Emerging Infections Consortium have announced plans to compile a so-called Core Result Set (COS) to help paint a better picture of the aftermath of cod.
In a statement issued by the WHO, Asark said that Long Cowade, one of the lesser-known aspects of epidemics, was an “emerging global health crisis”.
After going through a severe phase of infection, some people struggle to recover and suffer from ongoing symptoms, including shortness of breath, extreme fatigue and mental fog, as well as cardiac and neurological disorders.
Despite having a “significant portion” of Cowed’s 19 cases, Isaac said, “Evidence of this condition is limited and consists of younger patients who have been followed up short-term.”
“The development of COS is urgently needed to improve and standardize clinical data collection and reporting (especially clinical trials) and clinical practice.”
The statement said that an international group of post-COS and post-Cowid experts has developed a research program in collaboration with WHO and ISARIC.
The project, entitled Post-Cowed Condition Cover Results, will begin with a survey of people living with long-cured Cowed.
The first phase, which will be completed in the coming months, will focus on what results should be measured. Second, what will be completed in 2022 will consider how these results will be measured.
– Unknown number of victims –
About 20,205 million cases of the corona virus have been registered in China since the outbreak in December 2019, according to official sources compiled by AFP.
The actual figures, including the unregistered cases, will be much higher, while the number of people suffering from long coward is simply unknown.
The WHO said last week it was working on better rehabilitation programs for patients with chronic coma.
The organization has held several seminars this year aimed at raising awareness of the aftermath of the quake, not only from scientists and doctors but also from the victims themselves.
Janet Diaz, WHO’s lead on Long Cowd, said more than 200 symptoms had appeared in the past week.
Diaz said some patients had symptoms that dragged on. The condition of others improved and then the condition of those who could come and go changed. Others had symptoms that appeared only after recovering from an acute phase.
A small proportion of patients have symptoms for nine months and longer.
