COVID-19 Long Haulers On Thursday's Access Utah

Deseret News

Responding to a recent Access Utah episode on COVID-19 in Utah, Lisa O’Brien wrote us to say that she had founded a Utah COVID-19 Long Haulers group, and that many are still struggling with long term effects of COVID. She says that some have hit 8 months or longer and that studies are now showing that at least 10% are ending up with long term effects & that Post COVID Care centers are going up across the country for Long Haulers to help those dealing with Post Viral symptoms. Today we’ll talk with Lisa O’Brien, Stacie Linderman, and Christine Maughan.
