Science Magazine, “From ‘brain fog’ to heart damage, COVID-19’s lingering problems alarm scientists”

“In the Body Politic survey, respondents with negative test results were tested a week after those with positive ones, on average, but the groups did not differ in their incidence of 60 different symptoms over time. Those matching patterns strongly suggest that those with negative tests are indeed dealing with the same disease.”

The Atlantic

“…that research project that they did is such an important part of the picture. It’s the patients themselves taking their own care and their own health into their own hands and presenting really vital information that people need to be aware of.”

There needs to be some bidirectionality…to avoid institutional “top down” blind spots about the condition. We have been encouraged to find really interesting patient led research about long covid and antibody testing e.g. Slack Body Politic group, and all of this patient led data could be the foundation for supporting the rehabilitation of those affected by prolonged symptoms of covid-19.

At the time of the survey, 91% of respondents reported not being recovered after 40 days of experiencing symptoms. Moreover, 70% of respondents reported developing new symptoms at different stages of the illness. Most alarming, many experienced systemic stigmas from a variety of sources that affected their ability to recover.
