London, Oct 21 (PTI) The UK government on Wednesday launched a new campaign to highlight the far-reaching impact of “Long Covid”, or the long-term effects of COVID-19, and that it affects people of all ages.

The symptoms of “Long Covid” include fatigue, protracted loss of taste or smell, respiratory and cardiovascular symptoms and mental health problems. They are described in detail in a new film featuring people of different ages as part of the UK’s wider national “Hands, Face, Space” campaign promoting hygiene and social distancing as ways of controlling the spread of coronavirus.
