The most important question about long COVID (Harvard news)

It is not a single disease. We still don’t have a grasp of the underlying mechanism. We see several collections of symptoms: loss of smell and taste, severe fatigue, myocarditis (heart inflammation), lung disease / shortness of breath, mimicry of Chronic fatigue syndrome. I am glad there is significant work in this area, as it is possible that up to 1 million people are out of the workforce in America as a result of this illness.
