During the COVID-19 pandemic, scientific evidence has advanced in the assessment and establishment of treatments for COVID-19 patients, both inpatients and outpatients. However, these studies have focused on acute disease and there is a need to advance in the understanding of post-COVID-19 condition. Nowadays, this is one of the most relevant challenges, which has been approached by identifying, characterizing, and following patients with long-term manifestations, but also requires preparedness and equipping the health system for diagnosis and provision of clinical care, especially in resource-limited settings.
