UK provided £10M for COVID-19 effects research - Hancock

United Kingdom Health Secretary Matt Hancock stated on Wednesday the country has invested almost £10 million in the research of long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on health.

"It's one of the consequences of this being a novel virus. We're constantly learning about the impact of it, and it does appear that for some people there's a pretty debilitating long-term impact, quite similar to a post-viral fatigue syndrome that you do get with many viruses," he said while stressing the importance of research in treatment and prevention of such effect.

Hancock previously announced the UK will see the "biggest flu vaccination program in history" next winter to prevent the spreading of the disease during the coronavirus pandemic.
