The survey also found that 26 percent of some 4,120 doctors believed they had – or may have had – COVID-19.

The worrying finding came as no surprise to Dr David Strain, the BMA’s medical academic staff committee co-chair, noting that frontline staff had experienced high rates of infection, adding that it was “not acceptable”.

He said: “The increasing evidence that COVID-19 patients can suffer long-lasting symptoms, irrespective of the severity of the initial infection, requires detailed study to understand what optimum treatment would be, and, preferably, how to prevent it occurring in the first place.

“Until this is known, it is imperative that the Government and the NHS does more to protect the medical community from infection.”
