Queensland Health research about COVID has been in the news lately. Due to be presented at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases in Barcelona in late April, the research found that a year after infection there was no evidence of worst post-viral symptoms if infected by COVID-19 when compared with influenza or other respiratory illnesses.

It’s an area of research that is contested, with different definitions of what long-COVID is and different ways data is collected.

Queensland’s Chief Health Officer, Dr John Gerrard says the term “long-COVID” should be scrapped, saying its use implies there’s something unique about longer term symptoms associated with COVID infection.

Dr Norman Swan has provided a critical analysis of the Queensland research suggesting it has major problems. You can find that here:
