Over one million people reporting Long Covid in the UK

According to the latest ONS figures, over one million people were estimated to be suffering from Long Covid in the UK in the four weeks ending 6 March. Long Covid is defined as "symptoms persisting more than four weeks after the first suspected coronavirus episode that are not explained by something else". As this chart shows, while 420 thousand say that this does not restrict them in their daily activities, 674 thousand are experiencing some degree of problems in this regard.

Note that these figures represent symptoms "as experienced by study participants, rather than clinically diagnosed ongoing symptomatic Covid-19 or post-Covid-19 syndrome." The source adds that while "there is no universally agreed definition of long Covid, it covers a broad range of symptoms such as fatigue, muscle pain, and difficulty concentrating."


This chart gives a breakdown of the people reporting Long Covid symptoms in the UK in 2021.
