Post‒COVID-19 condition, also known as long COVID, is a condition where people experience new or persisting symptoms after an initial COVID-19 illness. CADTH uses WHO’s definition of long COVID. According to this definition, long COVID is when people experience symptoms for more than 12 weeks after an initial COVID-19 infection. People with post‒COVID-19 condition may experience a range of symptoms. Some symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle aches, and cognitive and mental health challenges.

CADTH conducted a scoping review to map out the current evidence landscape on post‒COVID-19 condition and to identify evidence gaps. This report is part of CADTH’s Condition-Level review on the post-COVID-19 condition.
