Lunch & Learn - Surviving Long Covid
Most People with Covid-19 won't become severely ill and will often recover within weeks of illness. But even a mild infection can cause long Covid. And with the high transmissibility of certain variants - which often results in milder disease outcomes - many people may be concerned about developing long Covid.
Long Covid - or post Covid conditions - is a wide range of new, returning or on going health problems people may experience more than four weeks after being first infected. Even, people who did not have any symptoms can experience long Covid, which can present as different types and combinations of health problem and can range in lengths of time, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Dr. Stephen Bloom, Medical Director of Rehabilitation at St.Josephs Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, will join us to talk about the symptoms of long Covid and living with the long-term effects. Time will be reserved to answer specific questions.
