Will COVID-19 Lead to ME/CFS in Some People?
 

Solve M.E. 2020 Webinar: "Will COVID-19 Lead to ME/CFS in Some People" by Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff

People with myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or ME/CFS) commonly report that an infection preceded their chronic illness. A number of viruses have been implicated as triggers of ME/CFS, including previous coronavirus strains (e.g. the 2003 SARS coronavirus outbreak).

Now, as the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) sweeps the world, experts predict that a significant number of people will develop post-viral problems that could be lifelong. There are already reports that COVID-19 "long-haulers" still have lingering symptoms, even more than 100 days post-infection.

In this webinar, Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff (Harvard Medical School) and Dr. Sadie Whittaker (Solve M.E. Chief Scientific Officer) discuss what we know so far about the connection between COVID-19 and ME/CFS, questions we should be asking, and the research efforts that are forming in response to this unique opportunity to understand post-viral illness.

Check out Dr. Komaroff's blog post on the Center for Solutions for ME/CFS website "Will There Be a Post-COVID-19 Form of ME/CFS?" here:
