One common post-COVID symptom is brain fog or "COVID fog," which may affect up to 25% of recovered individuals. Given the global prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 and the detrimental impact of such cognitive impairment, the public health implications are considerable. Fernández-Castañeda et al. recently examined the underlying neurological changes associated with COVID fog, which we review in this blog post.
Although the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has been ongoing for more than two years, a clear understanding of the symptoms of long COVID remains elusive.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of those living with diabetes were required to follow strict guidelines to protect themselves against infection as they were at high risk of morbidity and mortality. This blog takes a look at the links between angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) expression and diabetes, as well as incident diabetes and long COVID.
During this webinar, experts from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust describe the presenting symptoms and diagnostic challenges for patients in their syncope clinic presenting with autonomic dysfunction in Long-COVID.
