    I tuned in for snippets. I had to turn off when the CDC guy was told we need to track long COVID and he said that was not possible as we don't have studies and agreement on how to diagnose. Where has that happened before I wonder.

    One positive impression I had is that with all the work going on studying acute COVID cases there is going to be a lot more baseline data that will help longCOVID research. Some of the deep dives into Tcell analysis for example were fascinating. No idea what they were talking about.

    And a New York Times article, which is sadly naive of all context. If minimal attention had been given to this problem it would not have been necessary to cram years of neglected work into mere months. Now it is urgent. It was always urgent, but now it is... urgenter?


    Covid Survivors With Long-Term Symptoms Need Urgent Attention, Experts Say

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/04/health/covid-long-term-symptoms.html?smid=tw-share

    Hmmm... that damn s-word. Not ideal.
    Work should have started decades ago. Medicine knows nothing here as a choice, made with extreme foolishness. Denial has consequences.

    Have not seen many reactions so far. But I'll take as a good sign that the only reaction I have seen is rather positive.





    I seem to remember he had tweeted something to the effect that LC has effectively challenged the notion of "all in the mind" but either I mixed up who tweeted it or he deleted it. Oh well.
    (It was somebody else)
