Re: Long covid: doctors call for research and surveillance to capture disease

To The Editor

Sequelae of viral infections can take a very long time to manifest. For example, Subacute Sclerosing Pan Encephalitis (SSPE) can take 1 to 27 years to develop. Thus it will require great patience to study all the Sequelae of CoVID-19.
