Dear supporters
Thank you for your signatures and comments and for spreading the petition. Thanks to you we are on the way to 7000 (!) Signatures!
Last week the German Ministry for Education and Investigation decided on the distribution of the Long Covid funds and took BC 007 into account. Most of you will already be informed about this, but here is the link (in German I'm afraid): www.bmbf.de/bmbf/shareddocs/kurzmektiven/de/2021/09/long-covid-forschung.html

This is a first success !! This means that a clinical test phase can begin as a preliminary stage to the approval studies. But our petition continues. First, the approved funding is just a start and a drop in the ocean. Second, the signatures from around the world make the international urgency very clear. The EU must also invest in Long Covid research! The more signatures we collect before the petition goes to Brussels, the better. So let's go on!
Thank you again and all the best,
Helga Kuipers
