A Long Covid Compendium

Long Covid is now pretty close to the top of my List Of Diseases I Never Want To Get. For the past several weeks I have been collecting Long Covid news so I thought I should post this today.
Even Queen Elizabeth II may have had it.

This is why masks matter:

I guess there's no possibility that the vaccination is causing some of this. Wait a minute. That's heresy. It must be. Nobody's got the science anymore.

Thanks for this, Cathie. The queen's sudden death is consistent with a massive heart attack or stroke. As the tweets above indicate, heart attacks and strokes are more common among people with long Covid, and the queen had Covid in February this year.

I think she died suddenly at Balmoral several hours before it was announced. They announced that she was under medical care while the princes made their way to Scotland. Later, the public was told that she died comfortably in the presence of loved ones. It's hard to believe she was meeting with Liz Truss and then three days later her family was gathered to be with her as she died. There were no interim reports that she was being treated. The royals are so stage-managed and this reeks of a cooked-up ending.

No need to be sorry. I just have difficulty reaching absolute conclusions. Recently, my doctor introduced a twenty-five minute conversation on the question that reinforced my doubting attitude when I asked for his recommendation on a second booster.

Cathie from Canada said...

It surprises me that any doctor would discourage boosters.
In my family, we have all had as many Covid boosters as the Canadian and provincial public health policies recommend.
My second booster was last April, and I expect we will be getting Covid boosters at least once a year from now on, just like we get annual flu shots.

He didn't discourage taking the booster. He provided me with information that enabled me to make an informed decision. It could be that licences are no longer under threat.
