Letter to the Editor: Long-haulers and symptoms

I just read an article titled long-haulers and thought it was about truckers. It was about Covid long-haulers. It’s a persistent and wide-ranging set of symptoms that follow a corona-virus infection. Nearly 100 kinds of lingering symptoms and physical damage have been catalogued, including scarred lungs, chronic heart damage, severe headaches, kidney failure, bulging veins, hand tremors, debilitating fatigue, fever, nausea, stomach problems, hair loss, sensitivity to light and sound, blurry vision, short term memory loss, and brain fog so dense it can be difficult to write even a simple e-mail. With my kind of luck I aim going to keep wearing a mask and take extra precautions and show this disease a lot of respect.
