Abstract
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has caused an unprecedented global public health crisis. The term long Covid is used to describe diverse and heterogeneous symptoms that persist more than 4 weeks after infection with an estimated incidence of 10-40%, which varies between studies. The principal characteristics of long Covid are fluctuating symptoms of prolonged duration affecting multiple organs, such as fatigue, dyspnea, cough, anosmia, dysgeusia, chest pain, palpitations, headache, myalgia, cognitive and gastrointestinal disorders. Contributing factors, possible pathophysiological explanations and international recommendations can help in the management of the disease in the outpatient setting. Biopsychosocial and multidisciplinary management in primary care medicine is essential.
