Has Long Covid been exaggerated?

New data suggests that real numbers may be much smaller than claimed
by Finn McRedmond
Long Covid or just fatigue?

New evidence suggests that the extent of the “Long Covid” phenomenon may have been dramatically exaggerated.

The risks of Long Covid was a central argument in favour of draconian restrictions during the pandemic and, according to official figures, the condition remains extremely widespread. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States states that nearly one in five American adults who have had Covid-19 are experiencing Long Covid. Meanwhile, self-reported survey data from the UK indicates that there are 1.8 million people — 2.8% of the whole population — currently living with the condition.

But new data is complicating this picture, and indicating that many of the self-reported Long Covid cases may be incorrectly recorded.

A paper published on 14th August by the Institute of Child Health at Great Ormond Street, currently undergoing peer review, found that teenagers whose parents have had Long Covid symptoms are more likely to report suffering Long Covid symptoms themselves. Notably, this association was present in teenagers regardless of whether they tested positive or negative for Covid-19 at the outset of the trial period.

Researchers followed a cohort of 12,788 11-17 year-olds with confirmed positive Covid-19 PCR tests, and compared them to a control group matched by age, sex and geographical area with negative PCR tests. 33.3% of teenagers with “Long Covid parents” reported symptoms of the illness; by contrast, 22.6% of teenagers whose parents didn’t have Long Covid reported symptoms that could match the condition.

Lead author of the study and Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at St George’s University of London, Dr Shamez Ladhani, told UnHerd that, among other potential factors, “there is a component where lots of parents are anxious [about Long Covid], and that anxiety can be passed to their children”.

The study raises doubt over whether we can always confidently assert the presence of Long Covid, especially in children. The problem, according to Dr Ladhani, is that the symptoms — which include fatigue, abdominal pain and headaches — are too broad and common to assert a connection.

“The biggest damage we’ve done is to open up a pandora’s box and start attributing every symptom to Long Covid. There is a small minority of children who do develop serious complications after Covid, but this proportion is much lower than reported rates, likely less than 1%.”

Other recent data has come to a similar conclusion. A study published in Nature magazine on 25th July found at least one Long Covid symptom occurred in 5.4% of patients who had tested positive for the virus, compared to 4.3% of patients who had never tested positive for the virus.

This same study also supports emerging theories about possible psychological drivers behind people self-diagnosing with Long Covid. It found anxiety and depression to be comorbidities highly associated with an increased risk of reporting such symptoms. Using the World Health Organisation’s definition of Long Covid, researchers found 13.5% of those who suffered from anxiety prior contracting Covid to have self-reported symptoms, compared to 7.7% of the overall sample. Similarly, 13.4% of people already suffering from depression self-reported Long Covid symptoms, compared to the same sample. Anxiety and depression were among the most common comorbidities of apparent Long Covid.

The most recent US Census Bureau Household Pulse survey uncovered another confounding association: transgender people are significantly more likely to report suffering from Long Covid symptoms than the general population. It estimated that 47% of transgender adults who have had Covid claim they are suffering from Long Covid symptoms, compared to 39% of women and 26% of men who say they are experiencing symptoms.

With so many cases being claimed, the risk is that genuine cases are obscured. As Dr Ladhani told UnHerd, “we cannot identify the actual risk because real cases are getting buried in the noise.”

I just assumed Long Covid was something the MSM and health authorities cooked up to scare people. Literally ever single thing we have been told about Covid has been exaggerated – or has been a flat out lie.

I think it’s a real thing – it seems to be a flavor of sickness syndrome. An immune response can cause these symptoms, and doesn’t necessarily end in all people when symptoms subside – the virus (or fragments of it) could still be present in some parts of the body, or the immune response may improperly persist after they are cleared. I suspect we are seeing something similar to the long-term response to the Epstein-Barr virus some people experience.

That being said, self-reporting on this is bound to be noisy, as the symptoms can be pre-existing, psychogenic, or caused by pathogens other than SARS-CoV-2. I expect a very large portion of hypochondriacs to believe they have long covid.

It is pretty much inevitable that the sensationalist media and authoritarian politicians would play up the risk / frequency.

But none of that means it doesn’t happen.

No – Long covid is real.Think of it like this, Covid is a seed, 1/1000th the size of a grain of rice, blowing in the wind which you breathe into the warm wet areas of your nasal passages, where it takes root and transforms itself into Covid during the time you self isolate, passing from your head (as Pneumonia) down into your lungs, where it establishes itself as Pneumonia (Covid) over 2 to 3 weeks after arriving there and you wake up one day, unable to breathe, go on a ventilator set on high in hospital, to force air into your lungs, which causes scarring and if the Covid does not kill you the scarring will. But you still have the original infection in the warm wet areas in the nasal passages of your head, where it has established itself in the escuthcheon tubes to your inner ears, behind your eyes, in your brain bulb and in your brain stem, as Pneumonia, because the scientists disregard the head and are only interested in Covid (or Pneumonia) in your body – my free salt water cure, kills that infection in your head, before it ever gets to be Covid anything – simple – I have never had a vaccine for a virus cold, I have been virus free for over 29 years, doing my free salt water cure, which I posted here, just now – my life on it. Whether you are vaccinated or not

This strikes me as confirming the blindingly obvious, i.e. that people with a history of mental health issues, malingering and self-diagnosis are much more likely to self-diagnose themselves with Long Covid. Bears also sh*t in the woods.

It is more complicated than this: people not recovering from an acute illness is not unusual, whether covid or any other virus, bacterium or other. What the issue is how ‘long covid’ has been treated in the sensation press like the BBC and others. Actually chronic illness is one of the main issues for the health service (of which they have created more due to covid decisions btw). It is only when the health service starts looking at making people healthy that we shall make progress. As long as we maintain the health industry’s narrative (treating illness rather than making people and animals and nature healthy) as ‘normal’ we hall get further and further bogged down with issues to do with our health services that cannot cope and we cannot afford.

The only person I know who believes that she has ‘Long Covid’ has never had a job, lives on benefits because of various ‘disabilities’, including ‘fibromyalgia’, is obese and never talks about anything but herself and what a victim she is. She was also obsessed with ‘social distancing’ and masks. Those of us (and there is a group of us who were at school together, so we are all 62) who are still working and involved in other activities don’t have time.
We all caught it around the same time and, whilst we were all tired for a couple of weeks, said that she would be the one to get ‘Long Covid’. Sure enough…….!

Given the study they cite, I’m not convinced. I can think of a number of reasons why the children of parents with Long Covid might be more likely to report symptoms – perhaps there is a genetic element in susceptibility to Long Covid, for example. In any case, even if only 0.1% of children “develop serious complications after Covid”, that’s a very large number of sick children and a serious public health problem, so “likely less than 1%” is not reassuring at all to me.

Just the fact that you have to specify that you have “the CFS version of Long Covid” implies that Long Covid isn’t actually a single illness at all.

Many infections can stimulate CFS like symptoms. When I was growing up I was told I had “chronic mononucleosis”. Turns out that doesn’t actually exist, and the symptoms got lumped into CFS. Please don’t misunderstand. I’m not at all saying it’s “in your head”. I was miserable for over a year with “chronic mono” and that wasn’t in my head either. However that doesn’t mean it’s really connected to COVID.

If you ask people “have you noticed any residual changes since your [fill in the blank disease]”, a significant percentage will say “gee, now that you mention it doc, I’ve been feeling [fill in the blank symptom]”. Following the long-COVID methodology, such reports should be chalked up as “long flu”, “long strep”, “long bronchitis”, etc. But we don’t do that. We presume they are something else and treat them accordingly. This article correctly suggests we should do the same for “long COVID”.

I understand your point about the potential pitfall of assuming a perhaps non-existent connection, but many of the people who had CFS before COVID appeared think that their CFS was triggered by a prior viral infection. If that is correct, it seems reasonable that COVID might also trigger it. Maybe I was just unlucky, but the timing is suspicious.
And I agree with you that ‘long COVID’ is a constellation of otherwise un-related problems, which have in common only that they were triggered by COVID. (Many ‘long COVID’ sufferers have respiratory issues, but I have none at all – and didn’t, thankfully, even when I had active COVID.)

No mention of ‘Long Vax’? That seems much the greater problem;
If Ron Johnson’s 5 hour Senate Hearing is to be believed – this is about the sole YouTube on the issue, and 6 months ago when Omicron hits USA – and so is just 1/10th of the whole story. Really, watch it, it is fascinating. Just skipping around is good too – but you have to realize things are Much worse now as Omicron is hitting the boosted/vaxed with hospitalization and death at a much greater rate then the unvaxed – go to ‘Rumble’ for censored free videos – search Dr Malone.

Not true. At least, in Washington state.
The unvaccinated, even as they are a substantailly smaller share of the public is hospitalized much more often.
https://doh.wa.gov/sites/default/files/2022-02/421-010-CasesInNotFullyVaccinated.pdf
COVID-19 case rates per 100,000 population from July 03 to July 30, 2022
Age group rate per 100k unvaccinated vaccinated Difference
12-34 1,325.0 785.1 1.7 times higher
in unvaccinated 35-64 1,460.5 888.0 1.6 times higher 65+ 1,913.0 903.1 2.1 times higher

What you may be thinking is vaxxed people get INFECTED much more. I believe you’d be right about that. Omicron gets past the vaccine enough to get you sick, but not sent to the hospital. The unvacc’d are still winning that contest.

In the early days of Covid, the loss of smell, anosmia, was attributed to stuffy noses. It has been proven since that direct or at least indirect nerve damage is involved. What if nerve damage is the common thread in long Covid? Brain Fog, lethargy, heart issues, lingering pains, and even anxiety and depression may have one common underlying cause. If that is the case, the real impact may be under reported. Much like shingles in the early days of investigation, many doctors and researches said, “it is just a case of nerves.” That turned out to be the answer in the long term.

I have experience of this condition and can confirm that it is something real with a physical dimension, and is not just in people’s heads. Medicine hasn’t got a proper handle on post-viral illnesses yet, including this one. In the meantime there’s a scattergun approach to treatment which doesn’t look as focused and professional as treatments for better-understood conditions do. It’s ok to question the stats as well, they’re just another part of the cloudy picture we currently have got of what post- viral illnesses are and how they work. But the people who have got debilitating symptoms do appreciate any and all attempts to help and support, I can assure you of that.

So, let’s unravel the threads of what we know, from the information we have been provided with, shall we: It seems to me that:
We know that Moderna did not spend the money creating Covid-19 and the synthetic mRNA vaccines from 2010, with their own money – that was US Government money, paid out by Fauci, in the millions and billions of American dollars to other Bio-Labs and Moderna, so that they could experiment with and create Covid-19 and synthetic mRNA vaccines, which they have patented between 2010 and 2016, because they have just said so.
We know that Fauci has patents too, but we don’t know if he has patents for Covid or mRNA vaccines and how far he was involved with all of this, beyond, up to his scalp and his wife too.
He must have been between a rock and a hard place, having on the one hand funded Moderna and probably Pfizer and on the other, having to do whatever Trump and Biden expected him to do, in pushing the mRNA vaccines narrative (based on hope) and of course the continued funding, on demand, from both Moderna and Pfizer.
I don’t know how many of you are aware of the education system, but it seems to have slowly devolved, from teaching students to think outside the box, to only thinking within the box and to believe whatever they are taught, without questioning that and here too.
This appears to have been taking place over the past 20 years or so, so, with Covid-19 and the synthetic mRNA vaccines, the medical establishment and everyone not related to medicine, everyone now thinks that whatever they are told is fact and there can be no other conclusion to come too – which suggests to me that perhaps DARPA had a hand in this, on behalf of the American and other governments, to eventually exterminate much of humanity, for its own ends – whatever they might be, via both Covid-19 and the mRNA vaccines, to begin with, followed up by Monkeypox, perhaps?.
However, although we had some proof, we did not have the word from Moderna, until now, that they are responsible for both Covid-19, that they spent the money (donated to them by Fauci), to develop Covid-19 and the synthetic mRNA vaccines, from 2010 to 2016 (not 2019) and have patented them, to exterminate most of us, in the shorter term and this fits in very neatly with the Globalists, the WEF and Claus Schwabb, don’t you think?
Personally, I believe we should hold all of the principal players to account, immediately and find out who and what is behind all of this and their intention to dispose of the mRNA and RNA vaccinated, before 2025, which can’t be stopped now – can it?
This is where people with financial clout or contacts, should stand up and do their thing
Incidentally, the 39 page Patent Infringement is included in the stuff I posted, as a PDF, just previously: Case 1:22-cv-11378 Document 1 Filed 08/26/22 Page 1 of 39 in The United States District Court For The District Of Massachusetts – which will probably give a lot more information which can be used against the principals and all of those behind this Covid-10 and mRNA vaccine intended slaughter

I will try to post the complete article I mentioned below here – see if I can, hope springs eternal: Official Biochemical and Statistical Evidence 100% confirms Moderna created Covid-19 patented in 2013
Covid-19 means: 19 nucleotide sequence and not 2019 at all.
By The Exposé on March 3, 2022
Evidence has emerged which proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the pharmaceutical giant Moderna, the company that has made billions through the sale of an experimental Covid-19 injection, actually created the Covid-19 virus.
They cited a Paper by Scientists in India, Switzerland, Italy and the US (cautiously entitled: MSH3 Homology and Potential Recombination Link to SARS-CoV-2 Furin Cleavage Site) in which they calculated that the chances of a 19 nucleotide sequence patented by Moderna randomly appearing in Covid-19 in circumstances where it does not appear anywhere else in nature are 1 in 3 trillion.
Furthermore they did not merely apply for a patent on 2016 February 4 with US9587003B2: as reported in the Daily Mail. They actually applied on 2013 December 16 for 4 patents with US9149506B2, US9216205B2, US9255129B2, US9301993B2:as well.
So Moderna had developed the 19 nucleotide gene sequence containing the Furin Cleavage Site which gives Covid19 its infectivity to humans by patented gain of function research as early as 2013, 6 years before the Wuhan outbreak took place. Not 3 as reported in the Mail and virally elsewhere..
Covid-19 was not made in 2019. It was made from the 19 nucleotide Moderna specific chimeric (CGG for AGA) furin cleavage site (in 2013) which does not occur anywhere in nature. And every Covid death and every Covid vaccine death is parked squarely on the doorstep of ModeRNA and The Covid19 makers, the genetic vaccine makers. their funders and their promoters, which include almost every government and public sector and health service in the world, are therefore guilty of Genocide and crimes against humanity. They have pushed genetic rape and sickness and death onto half of the population of the world in order to enrich the pockets of Pharmaceutical Companies. Governments and Public sectors around the world have abandoned their health service regulation to billionaires and heartless corporations (me: and to make we humans, Trans Humans and now, the vaccinated, without any human rights whatsoever

Moderna files lawsuit against Pfizer and BioNTech over COVID vaccine technology
(competitor’s vaccine infringes on “patents (for patented synthetic mRNA) that Moderna filed between 2010 and 2016”)
Follow the patents – 2010 and 2016 – so Moderna new about Covid as early as 2010 – to be able to come up with the Covid Vaccine Technology in the first place, from as early as 2010 – which goes hand in hand with the 2013 US Supreme Court Law making synthetic mRNA technology patentable, as it has been and those taking it, no longer human, but trans human and all human rights are lost = zero rights now for trans humans!! Gotcha!!
– so Moderna created and released Covid-19 and they produced the synthetic mRNA vaccines to combat it, those patented between 2010 and 2016 – Do you all agree?
Moderna seeking compensation including royalties, damages
Updated: 7:32 AM PDT Aug 26, 2022
Moderna is suing its chief competitor in the COVID-19 vaccine space, alleging that Pfizer and BioNTech stole key technology used in the development of that group’s inoculation.
Both Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech partnership created vaccines based on messenger RNA technology, which teaches the body’s immune system to target a specific protein found on a virus. In the case of the coronavirus, both targeted the spike protein extending out from the surface of the virus.
The Massachusetts-based company alleges that its competitor’s vaccine infringes on patents that Moderna filed between 2010 and 2016.
“We are filing these lawsuits to protect the innovative (synthetic) mRNA technology platform that we pioneered, invested billions of dollars in creating, and patented during the decade preceding the COVID-19 pandemic, (A decade is 10 years so 2010 +10 = 2020, bang on when vaccines were first released under Trump’s Emergency Protocol*) Moderna Chief Executive Officer Stéphane Bancel said in a statement provided by the company. “This foundational platform, which we began building in 2010, along with our patented work on coronaviruses in 2015 and 2016, enabled us to produce a safe and highly effective COVID-19 vaccine in record time after the pandemic struck.”
Moderna, which developed its vaccine with support from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was the first to begin testing its vaccine in humans. *That first shot was given at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Research Institute in Seattle in March of 2020*. Pfizer announced its first clinical trial began in May.
Pfizer and BioNTech, however, was the first to receive emergency authorization in the United States and was also the first to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Moderna said that it pledged in October of 2020 not to enforce its patents while the pandemic continued but altered that policy in March of this year. The company said it would now only enforce its rights in the world’s richest nations, retroactive only to March 8, 2022, while continuing to allow the COVID-19 vaccine patents to be used in 92 low- and middle-income countries.”Moderna expects Pfizer and BioNTech to compensate Moderna for Comirnaty’s ongoing use of Moderna’s patented technologies,” said Moderna Chief Legal Officer Shannon Thyme Klinger. “Our mission to create a new generation of transformative medicines for patients by delivering on the promise of mRNA science cannot be achieved without a patent system that rewards and protects innovation.”
Moderna said it will not seek to remove Comirnaty from the market but the company is seeking monetary compensation. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Massachusetts, seeks royalties, lost profits, attorneys’ fees, interest and ongoing royalties.
Pfizer issued the following statement Friday morning:
“Pfizer/BioNTech has not yet fully reviewed the complaint but we are surprised by the litigation given the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine was based on BioNTech’s proprietary mRNA technology and developed by both BioNTech and Pfizer,” the company said. “We remain confident in our intellectual property supporting the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and will vigorously defend against the allegations of the lawsuit.”
In a statement, Moderna explained the alleged infringement:
“Moderna believes Pfizer and BioNTech copied two key features of Moderna’s patented technologies which are critical to the success of mRNA vaccines. When COVID-19 emerged, neither Pfizer nor BioNTech had Moderna’s level of experience with developing mRNA vaccines for infectious diseases, and they knowingly followed Moderna’s lead in developing their own vaccine.
“First, Pfizer and BioNTech took four different vaccine candidates into clinical testing, which included options that would have steered clear of Moderna’s innovative path. Pfizer and BioNTech, however, ultimately decided to proceed with a vaccine that has the same exact mRNA chemical modification to its vaccine as Spikevax®. Moderna scientists began developing this chemical modification that avoids provoking an undesirable immune response when mRNA is introduced into the body in 2010 and were the first to validate it in human trials in 2015.
“Second, and again despite having many different options, Pfizer and BioNTech copied Moderna’s approach to encode for the full-length spike protein in a lipid nanoparticle formulation for a coronavirus. Moderna scientists developed this approach when they created a vaccine for the coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) years before COVID-19 first emerged.
“None of the patent rights which Moderna is seeking to enforce relate to any intellectual property generated during Moderna’s collaboration with the National Institutes of Health to combat COVID-19. That collaboration began only after the patented technologies at issue here were proven successful in clinical trials in 2015 and 2016.”
KCRA3News
The Hydrogel patent US8415325B2 is listed in the Moderna patent, here. Hydrogels are also mentioned in a second Moderna patent, here. Hydrogel is listed in the Johnson & Johnson patent, here. Hydrogels are made from Graphene Oxide. Nobody can deny the evidence that Graphene Oxide is in the shots.
GMO HUMANS
All the Covid-19 “vaccine” patents mention gene deletion. All the patents except one, mention “complimentary DNA” (cDNA). cDNA is a chimeric mRNA cocktail that’s being coded into Human cells using artificial genetic sequences in cross-species genomics.
According to the US Supreme Court ruling in 2013, altering Humans with cDNA makes them patent eligible. The court documents show that cDNA is made using modified bacterium and Supreme Court judges ruled it patent eligible. This means that a plant, animal or Human, could be patented and owned if first genetically modified with cDNA.
Mark Steele summarized it perfectly by stating:
In the US, the Supreme Court has ruled that vaccinated people worldwide are products, patented goods, according to US law, no longer human. Through a modified DNA or RNA vaccination, the mRNA vaccination, the person ceases to be human and becomes the OWNER of the holder of the modified GEN vaccination patent, because they have their own genome and are no longer “human” (without natural people), but “trans-human”, so a category that does not exist in Human Rights. The quality of a natural person and all related rights are lost. This applies worldwide and patents are subject to US law.
Since 2013, all people vaccinated with GM-modified mRNAs are legally trans-human and legally identified as trans-human and do not enjoy any human or other rights of a state, and this applies worldwide, because GEN-POINT technology patents are under US jurisdiction and law, where they were registered.”

Incidentally, the 39 page Patent Infringement is included in the stuff I posted, as a PDF, just previously: Case 1:22-cv-11378 Document 1 Filed 08/26/22 Page 1 of 39 in The United States District Court For The District Of Massachusetts – which will probably give a lot more information which can be used against the principals and all of those behind this Covid-10 and mRNA vaccine intended slaughter

It has been suggested that the headline constitutes an exception to Betteridge’s Law, i.e. that a headline that ends with a question mark must inevitably be answered with “No”.
I’d suggest a distinction to Betteridge’s Law: If the headline relates to a question of science, then the answer will be “no”; if it relates to a question of ideology or dogma, then the answer is “yes”.
It works the other way around as well; the fact that science answers the question with “mostly yes” points to the issue being mostly one of ideology.

I would also point out the risks of over-medicalization; long-term corticosteroid use, time/money spent following a medical model which may contributes very little to patient outcomes compared to lifestyle factors.

Since 2013, all people vaccinated with GM-modified mRNAs are legally trans-human and legally identified as trans-human and do not enjoy any human or other rights of a state, and this applies worldwide, because GEN-POINT technology patents are under US jurisdiction and law, where they were registered.”

See Richard Noakes’s comment in the comments at the end of this article

It amazes me that “we” are so insignificant that “they” can murder and injure us in our millions and then they can fight over the money they have made, off our corpses, like just so many Buzzards, with impunity.
My question then is, can they, or can we do something legally, using the same means they use to fight each other, to bring them down and destroy them, for their known and now admitted, Crimes Against Humanity?

Moderna to Supply 12 Million Doses of Omicron-Targeted COVID Shot to Canada

 3 minutes from preparation to job done!!

Everything else you have read, or heard, is totally irrelevant – how simple is that?

Covid Crusher: Mix one heaped teaspoon of Iodine table salt in a mug of warm clean water, cup a hand and sniff or snort the entire mugful up your nose, spitting out anything which comes down into your mouth. If sore, then you have a virus, so continue morning noon and night, or more often if you want, until the soreness goes away (2-3 minutes) then blow out your nose and flush away, washing your hands afterwards, until when you do my simple cure, you don’t have any soreness at all, when you flush – job done. Also swallow a couple of mouthfuls of salt water and if you have burning in your lungs, salt killing virus and pneumonia, there too.

My simple salt water cure, kills all Coronaviruses and viruses, as soon as you think you have an infection, or while self isolating, before the viruses mutate into the disease in your head and body, for which there is no cure – that is, after you have been out shopping, or mixing with people with potentially, Omicron or Delta viruses, or any other virus.

It washes behind the eyes, the brain bulb, brain stem (Long Covid), The Escutcheon Tubes to the inner ears and the top of the throat which is at a point roughly level with half way up your ears and not where your mouth is and down the back of your throat, when sore.

I have been doing this simple cure for over 29 years and I am and others, never sick from viruses and there is no reason why any of you should be either.

Simply put, if the inside of your nose is dry and crusty, you are OK, if your nose is runny, you really need to do a salt water sniffle as quickly as possible and monitor the results, to see if further salt water sniffles are necessary, but later on in that evening – so far – I remain immune from potential Covid infections, doing just this.

Nobody has been injured or killed by my above salt water cure

Moderna patented Covid-19 and the synthetic mRNA vaccines, they say, between 2010 and 2016, bearing in mind that Covid-19 was released by them in 2019. The millions or billions of dollars spent, were provided by Fauci to make Covid and the vaccines, as I reported below. The above cure, from me, cost NOTHING, is 100% effective against Coronaviruses and viruses and has killed and injured nobody – and now we have this:

The whole kit and caboodle, by Moderna, no less, confirming what we already knew, but not from the horse’s mouth, until now.

No. It is under estimated in fact. All of these excess deaths, heart/strokes? Death from covid doesn’t stop after 28 days. Why don’t you join some of the enormous groups online packed with people suffering LC? At least once a week i read a post from someone who is suicidal as they can’t cope any longer. No treatment, no support. And articles like this suggesting it isn’t happening. You should feel ashamed. So many are in pain, feeling desperate and ignored. Long covid is severe for many people, even the Bank of England have said our workforce is depleted from it. But if we all admit that long covid is disabling many then we’d need to stop acting like covid is benign. This article is offensive to me.

Don’t read it then. The heading should have given a clue.
