The original version of this Article contained an error in the Discussion, which incorrectly read ‘Lack of recovery was associated with more severe infection, older age, female gender, black and South Asian ethnic groups, deprivation, pre-existing respiratory disease and multimorbidity but pre-infection vaccination was associated with reduced risk of some persistent symptoms.’. The correct version states ‘white ethnicity’ in place of ‘black and South Asian ethnic groups’. This has been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
