Where Can I Get Treatment For Long COVID Now?

Anxiety-Depression-COVID-19Just issued, Time Magazine’s February 14-21/2022 edition is headlined “How COVID Ends.”  Beginning at page 42 is an article by Jamie Ducharme, “Long COVID, Long Wait.”  The takeaway, “so many people are suffering from Long COVID that treatment centers can’t keep up.”

It is estimated, according to the New England Journal of Medicine that at least 15 million Americans will be COVID long haulers by the end of the pandemic and that estimate, made in August, 2021 was published before the Omicron variant emerged. Unfortunately, too many Long COVID sufferers have not been diagnosed appropriately.

In many cases, their exposure to the virus may never have been known as testing was unavailable or initial exposure symptoms were mild. The article makes reference to the Survivor Corps which has 180,000    members and claims to be “the largest grassroots movement in America dedicated to actively ending this pandemic.”
