“We rely on our armed forces for our protection, so it is deeply concerning to learn that such numbers are living with this often fatal condition. With staff numbers already reduced so far in recent years, we cannot afford to let Covid long add to this further.
“An urgent strategy is needed to respond to the threat posed by the long Covid and provide support to the thousands of people suffering from the long-term consequences of this pandemic. ”
