First of all, if you’ve already had COVID and you’ve been trying to avoid hearing anything about ‘long COVID‘ for the sake of your sanity, then I’m sorry on both accounts.
One of the issues I have with our current (disastrous?) ‘let it rip’ policy on COVID-19 in Australia is that no-one is talking about long COVID. If just about everyone is going to catch COVID, then the ramifications of even a small percentage of people ending up with long COVID is unprecedented.
Great, more unprecedented.
By the looks of it, the long version behaves like an autoimmune disease, kind of a combo of chronic fatigue and lupus or fibromyalgia.
Our previously ableist society might learn what it’s like to live with a chronic illness.
Let it rip, we did.
