Tēma: “COVID-19 and rehabilitation”
“Rehabilitation after Covid-19 constitutes a challenge and there is a need to realise that there will be a large number of patients, not necessarily treated in hospital, with different symptoms after Covid-19 requiring rehabilitation medicine. Many of these patients will require rehabilitation not only for motor dysfunction, but also for cognitive dysfunction.” *
