Province to discuss long COVID models of care at national roundtable in June – CBC

Affecting a ‘significant proportion’ of cases and ‘quite debilitating’ for some, says Dr. Yves Léger

May 17, 2022

New Brunswick will participate in a national roundtable on long COVID-19 in early June, looking at different models of care, says the province’s acting deputy chief medical officer of health.

Long COVID is “a topic of great interest” in New Brunswick, said Dr. Yves Léger.

“We know that it is affecting a significant proportion of COVID cases,” he said.

How many, and for how long “aren’t exactly clear yet.”

“We still don’t have an official case definition for what is or isn’t long COVID,” said Léger.

“But we do know that it is, for some individuals, it is quite debilitating. It certainly can affect their quality of life and in some cases even their ability to work.”

Early reports from the World Health Organization showed 10 to 20 per cent of people infected with the virus would go on to have symptoms of long COVID. But earlier this month, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said more up-to-date research indicates it could be as many as half.
