The world is currently facing a COVID-19 pandemic and the next major problem is going to be post-COVID epidemiology. Heavily shaken by the corona pandemics many of us are currently thinking about how we could contribute to overcoming this unexpected situation.

According to WHO If people have recovered from COVID-19 but are still experiencing certain symptoms they could have post-COVID-19 conditions. It is also called “long COVID”, “long-term effects of COVID” or “chronic COVID”.
Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems, people can experience four or more weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
