RECOVER is a national research initiative from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The federal government recognizes the impact of COVID and has asked for an official set of rules to be created to evaluate the long-term symptoms people are reporting. The RECOVER study is designed to help ILLnet RECOVER's medical team understand why some people continue to feel sick after having COVID-19 and others don’t. It will also help identify what can be done to speed recovery and even prevent it.
