About 1.3 million people in the UK have “long Covid” symptoms lasting more than four weeks after an initial infection, a new survey suggests. Of those still experiencing symptoms, 70% caught the virus at least 12 weeks ago and 40% at least a year ago, the Office of National Statistics estimates. There is no universally agreed definition of long Covid, but symptoms recorded in the survey of 352,000 people suggest many still feel fatigue, a lost sense of smell, shortness of breath and difficulty concentrating.
