We are yet to establish the long-term effects of the Covid-19 pandemic at both individual and population level. We anticipate a myriad of consequences including, but not limited to, psychological, physical, social and economic effects. We can reference previous public health outbreaks involving other human betacoronaviruses (Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)) to aid our understanding of the potential aftermath of the pandemic.
The aim of this review is to assess the long-term impact of the SARS and MERS epidemics on individuals and the population at large in order to guide our approach to the long-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
