After five waves of the COVID-19 epidemic, a university research team estimated that more than 900,000 people who had recovered from COVID-19 suffered from at least one Post COVID-19 condition symptom, common symptoms of which included fatigue, poor memory, and insomnia. However, many of them were not aware of Post COVID-19 condition, and the government did not provide sufficient assistance. In view of this, the DAB collaborated with professional associations and launched a campaign on Post COVID-19 condition to raise the awareness of the public through a series of publicity events.
The DAB would organise six Health Consultations Days starting in March. People recovered from COVID-19 are welcome to register our free Chinese medicine consultations and join health seminars of different topics. We expect 3,000 recovering patients would be benefited. Attendees of health seminars would also receive healthy soup ingredient packs.
