Interim results from New Zealand’s Long Covid Registry show a deficiency in support measures and a significant number of people with Long Covid continue to work while unwell. This study, conducted in collaboration with Long Covid Support Aotearoa and the University of Auckland, sheds light on the challenges faced by Long Covid sufferers in New Zealand. The research, funded by the Ministry of Health, explores the health and wellbeing factors experienced by these individuals. Results indicate a considerable decline in quality of life, with participants reporting symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, concentration loss, and sleep disturbances. Many participants have experienced income loss and are no longer able to work a full 40-hour week. A significant number are using up sick leave, taking time off work, or reducing their work hours, while 72% continue to work despite being unwell. Long Covid advocates hope these findings will prompt governmental departments to consider the long-term effects of Long Covid on health services, productivity, and social support programs.
