Description:

Now that more than half of U.S. adults have been vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, masking and distancing mandates have been re-laxed, and Covid-19 cases and deaths are on the de-cline, there is a palpable sense that life can return to normal. Though most Americans may be able to do so, restoration of normality does not apply to the 10% to 30% of those who are still experiencing debilitating symptoms months after being infected with Covid-19.1 Unfortunately, current numbers and trends indicate that “long-haul Covid” (or “long Covid”) is our next public health disaster in the making.
