Royal Society: Long Covid: an unfolding story

Thursday 8 Apr 2021
18:00 to 19:00

Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe would like to inform you of the following talk from The Royal Society on their You Tube channel titled "Long Covid: an unfolding story" hosted by Professor Brian Cox.


With vaccination programmes underway across the globe, attention is turning to the longer-term impact of COVID-19 and in particular the condition termed 'long Covid'. Very little is known about the condition at the moment, despite some studies estimating that 1 in 20 are affected.

Large-scale research projects and population studies are now looking at the reported symptoms to understand what long Covid is, why some people are affected for months, and how we can treat it.

Join Professor Brian Cox as he talks to scientists working at the forefront of research into long Covid, and campaigners with personal experience of the devastating effect it can have on lives.

This event is part of a series of Royal Society events discussing the scientific response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Catch up with the first event on the Royal Society’s YouTube channel.

  • Dr Nisreen Alwan, Associate Professor in Public Health, University of Southampton
  • Professor Nishi Chaturvedi, MRC Unit for Lifelong Health & Ageing, University College London
  • Professor Paul Elliott, Director of the REACT programme, and Chair in Epidemiology and Public Health Medicine, Imperial College London
  • Dr Adam Rutherford, geneticist, author, and presenter of BBC’s Radio 4’s Inside Science
