Long-haulers continue to exhibit symptoms weeks, if not months, after contracting COVID-19.

They're in it for the long haul. Fatigued. Short of breath. Continuing to exhibit symptoms weeks -- if not months -- after contracting COVID-19. This hour: long-haulers and the known -- and unknown -- effects of a once-in-a-century virus. We hear from a physician at the University of Vermont, a New York Times reporter who has written about the experiences of long-haulers,  and we answer your questions.
Our guest is:

  • Emma Goldberg, reporter and reseracher for The New York Times who has written about the experiences of COVID-19 long-haulers
  • Dr. Katherine Menson, adult pulmonologist and ICU intensivist at the University of Vermont Medical Center

Broadcast live on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.; rebroadcast at 7:00 p.m.
