During the past 3 years, everyone has been expecting Covid to have negative impacts on survivors, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it's permanent, the consequences of having it are making themselves known.
(Sorry, this isn't a freebie-I ran out of my share a while ago.)
Long Covid Is Keeping Significant Numbers of People Out of Work, Study Finds
While this is based on Workers Compensation from NY State, it does not bode well for the rest of the country.
"The study, published Tuesday by New York’s largest workers’ compensation insurer, found that during the first two years of the pandemic, about 71 percent of people the fund classified as experiencing long Covid either required continuing medical treatment or were unable to work for six months or more. More than a year after contracting the coronavirus, 18 percent of long Covid patients had still not returned to work, more than three-fourths of them younger than 60, the analysis found."
So when people start thinking only the 'old people' get long Covid, don't agree. It's not true,
A lot of things have been said about covid that are not true, but they've been repeated so many times that many people believe them.
Everyone who sets out to "do their own research" should heed this simple guideline: Consider the source!
