The Center for Covid Research has the mission of providing Long Covid patients, as well as family and friends of those afflicted with Long Covid, with a centralized resource where they can read the latest news about Long Covid, locate information about new authoritative research about the condition, understand symptoms, find specialists in the field of treating Long Covid, and share their own experiences.

In late May, the Long Covid Art Project, which asks Long Covid patients to send in various forms of art, in digital format, including, but not limited to, drawings, photographs, essays, poetry, music, and videos, that expresses their emotions about their battles with the condition, will launch.

Long Covid is a public health concern that needs defining, quantifying, and describing. The Center aims to explore the initial and ongoing symptoms of Long Covid following SARS-CoV-2 infection and any treatments patients are undergoing, and it will analyze Long Covid’s impact on the daily life of patients with the condition.

Long Covid Awareness Day will take place annually on April 27. The next observance will be on April 27, 2025.

Long Covid Awareness Day was created by the Center for Long Covid Research and researchers across the globe who want to educate the public about the “complex medical disorder,” as it was described by researchers in the United States published in 2021 in the International Journal of Immunopathology and Pharmacology.

The day will be marked with an online symposium, open to the public, sponsored by the Center for Long Covid Research
