The Dutch KNGF physiotherapists’ association estimates, based on research among its members, that at least 28,000 ex-covid patients are currently undergoing treatment for convalescence care. More than half of them (54 percent) are younger than 55 years .
Jako Burgers of the Dutch College of General Practitioners also thinks it concerns tens of thousands of people. “In my practice I have ten people with such a long aftermath. There are five thousand GP practices, suppose they all have eight. Then you’re on forty thousand people . I think that is a realistic estimate, which is also supported by international research. ”
