The SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) is a health crises with long-lasting consequences. To date more than 100 million people have recovered from COVID-19 infections, but many will have long term respiratory complications.
There is a growing population of COVID-19 patients with prolonged post-acute symptoms, a syndrome described as “long COVID” that presents with a variety of chronic health issues that include impaired lung function, reduced exercise capacity and diminished quality of life.
