It’s been a long 19 months since January 2020, during which the term ‘COVID-19’ has become not only known, but perhaps the most-used noun in the English language.
Now, as states and territories across Australia enter and continue lockdown restrictions and the number of cases in NSW reaches new heights almost every day, doctors and colleagues in this country are being forced to consider our capacity to counter the mysterious outcome of the virus that is ‘long COVID’.
In the August issue of medicSA we start to look at long COVID, the rapidly accumulating research into it, and what it will mean for people who have been infected with COVID-19 and the health system.
We also ask doctors for their thoughts about the rural doctors crisis and the master-plan for the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and congratulate the members who earned Queen’s Birthday Honours and AMA Fellowship in recent months.
