Long-COVID is a recently described syndrome that follows a COVID-19 infection in around 5-10% of people. Because COVID-19 is so widespread Long-COVID may become the largest single source of disability. This presentation reviews the experience of Long-COVID and research on the epidemiology, assessment, and treatment of Long-COVID and provides an update on the gaps and opportunities for psychological research.
