According to the British Medical Journal, one in 10 people who contract Covid are still unwell more than three weeks after their initial infection and some are remaining unwell many months later.

Symptoms such as severe headaches, extreme fatigue, dizziness and difficulty in concentrating are typical and notably exercise can amplify these symptoms, say government medical experts.

Rees-Mogg added: “Obviously the general welfare system does have support for people with long-term health conditions and in that regard, the coronavirus will not be any different.

“The only difference currently is a lack of full knowledge but the Government and expert scientists and the doctors are working to try and understand more fully the consequences of the long-term effects of the coronavirus.

“So I can assure her that things are being done but I can’t give her a more complete answer because the investigations are not completed.”
