Post-COVID Conditions: What the CDC Wants you to Know


The CDC term "post-COVID conditions" includes the wide range of physical and emotional sequelae affecting many patients for ≥4 weeks post-infection.

The CDC uses the term “Post-COVID conditions” to encompass the wide range of physical and mental health consequences experienced by some patients for 4 weeks or more after infection with SARS-CoV-2.

CDC emphasizes that symptoms from this array can develop in patients who had initial mild and even asymptomatic acute infection and in young people as well as in older adults with higher-risk profiles.

The slides here highlight the information available at this early stage of the post-crisis pandemic era in the US. The CDC states: "Based on current information, many post-COVID conditions can be managed by primary care providers..." That topic will be covered next.
