German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach wants to assist long-lasting Covid-19 patients with more information and improve their care through investment in research. "A hotline to the ministry will soon be set up as a contact point for people who want to know more about 'Long Covid'," Lauterbach told the "Rheinische Post". According to the minister, this hotline should also provide information on diagnostics and new therapeutic approaches. The Ministry of Health also wants to "invest 100 million euros in research that examines how long patients with Covid can be best treated," said the minister. “An important question, for example, is which form of rehabilitation works. The wrong rehabilitation can lead to further negative effects,” explained Lauterbach.
