It is recognised that in some people who have been infected with Covid-19 continuing symptoms or side effects can occur during recovery. These can include physical, mental or emotional difficulties.
A person recovering from COVID-19 infection should speak to their general practitioner or their hospital team about accessing relevant care pathways to ensure that they are enabled to received support and advice for any long-term symptoms or health problems they may be experiencing.
The general practitioner or the hospital team will understand the clinical history and the personal circumstances relating to an individual and can provide the necessary advice and guidance that suit the particular needs of the individual’s circumstances.
You may wish to note that the HSE has provided information for those recovering after Covid-19, which is available at the following link:www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/recovering-after-coronavirus.html.
Income supports for people affected by COVID-19, is a matter for the Department of Social Protection.
