Long COVID poses a variety of challenges for those affected - both health-related and social. To support you in managing your symptoms and other questions, Altea permanently develops Guidebooks. The topics can be grouped into different categories, as shown by the keywords below. The Guidebooks on symptoms are highlighted in yellow, those on social issues in blue. The offer of Guidebooks is constantly being expanded. For an overview of all Guidebooks visit our Download Center.
