Lidovky.cz: Is the so-called long covid a diagnosis? Can it be marked that way?
In the Czech Republic, we use a system called ICD-10, i.e. the International Classification of Diseases. In the part of the list dedicated to covid, a diagnosis appears with the code U09.9 and the name condition following covid-19 disease, unspecified. In particular, there is also a multisystem inflammatory syndrome that affects children and is known to the public mainly under the name PIMS. But it’s not that simple in reality, because the definition of the so-called long covid differs from state to state. Note that the aforementioned diagnosis does not specifically name it in its title, but only vaguely describes it.
