Long COVID and Human Rights

The world has been in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic for well over a year.

For most, the symptoms will pass quickly and daily life will continue as normal. But there are some who are still living with long-term effects of the virus even after initial infection. Long COVID is where symptoms of Covid-19 are reported to have lasted for longer than 4 weeks but there is still a lot that is unknown about Long COVID, including why it's triggered, who will get it and how long it will take to make a full recovery, if one is made at all. 

Using data from the Trades Union Congress (TUC) report into Long COVID, we explore what its implications are for our human rights and the communities it affects; from workers rights, to education and the right to life.

EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
