Surprise: An Alarming Rise In Long COVID In Americans

Do you know anyone with long Wuhan Flu? I don’t. My parents don’t. Coworkers don’t.

‘Alarming’ rise in Americans with long Covid symptoms

Some 6.8% of American adults are currently experiencing long Covid symptoms, according to a new survey from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), revealing an “alarming” increase in recent months even as the health agency relaxes Covid isolation recommendations, experts say.

That means an estimated 17.6 million Americans could now be living with long Covid.

“This should be setting off alarms for many people,” said David Putrino, the Nash Family Director of the Cohen Center for Recovery From Complex Chronic Illness at Mount Sinai. “We’re really starting to see issues emerging faster than I expected.”

When the same survey was conducted in October, 5.3% of respondents were experiencing long Covid symptoms at the time.

The 1.5 percentage-point increase comes after the second-biggest surge of infections across the US this winter, as measured by available wastewater data.

More than three-quarters of the people with long Covid right now say the illness limits their day-to-day activity, and about one in five say it significantly affects their activities – an estimated 3.8 million Americans who are now experiencing debilitating illness after Covid infection.

A new study found that thousands of people in the UK may not be working because of long Covid. Americans have also missed work at higher rates since the pandemic started.

I have to wonder, how many really, really have it? They should ask things like if they are still wearing a mask. If they are demanding everyone else still wear a mask. If they were mask Nazis during COVID. If they double masked. That might expose that they are really just covidcondriacs.

And, ask how many shots/boosters they’ve had

Although children are not included in the CDC survey, they also experience long Covid, including fatigue, brain fog and headaches, as well as serious respiratory and cardiovascular issues, such as myocarditis, studies show.

You mean the myocarditis linked to taking the Bat Soup Virus vaccines?

While vaccines help reduce the risk of developing long Covid, the best way to prevent it is by avoiding Covid, Putrino said – especially since repeat infections raise the likelihood of prolonged illness. “Every time you get a Covid infection, you place yourself at higher risk of going on to develop long Covid.”

The funny part is how those most likely to wear masks, screech at others to wear masks, and have the shots and 5 boosters are the ones most likely to get Wuhan flu repeatedly.

Anyhow, I’m sure some people are having issues thanks to the Chinese coronavirus, as they were screwing around with it in an unsafe manner, but, is it really 5.3%? Or are lots sandbagging to avoid work/making themselves sick like those who read symptoms online?

    One of my co-workers has it. But I suspect she is just milking the system for more pair time off.

      Got my infection on December 22 when a family member arrived ill from Africa. It took 2 months to be able to move, not cough and have an appetite. Still have issues. Fauci really did a number on us and absolutely none of the CDC recommendations are founded in fact or based in logic. Fauci needs to be in jail.

    Teach is this “fearmongering”? Doom and gloom?

    Myocarditis from covid is rare about 1500 per million
    Myocarditis from vaccination is extremely rare 106 per million
    You are 10x more likely to get myocarditis from covid as from the vaccine.
    Teach, being vaccinated yourself with Trump’s vaccine that was pushed through at warp speed, is this something that personally worries you considering your increased risk from prior vaping and current weight?

      I love when you discuss medical matters. You know absolutely nothing about most topics but you clearly do not understand medicine. Where did you get your numbers, it is almost impossible to find them. Then how do you define myocarditis, that is a much debated topic. Them, do you understand the difference in getting an illness from the community and obtaining an illness from a jab that is just about useless. Stay with the carbon hoax.

    According to the CDC, long covid is more frequent in caucasians/Hispanics, women, 35-64 year olds, middle class, and smaller towns and cities. Asians, Blacks, the wealthy, men, kids and seniors, and big city folk are less likely to be affected.

    Is this idiot still using the CDC as a result reliable source? There is no end to which doubt will not go to prove himself a cluck. No matter how much some left-leaning source lives to dowd he’ll take it to the bank as gospel.

    • Professor Hale says:

      Careful. You will trigger him to cut-paste some more trivia with lots of percentages and decimal places.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Professor of what??? Anyway, people like you and Brandon prefer to use your opinions, beliefs and feelings as a basis for policy!! BTW, we supplied a link to the CDC information – have at it.

        We get it. It is so much easer for MAGAts to tear down and rag on institutions – universities, scientific orgs, scientists, CDC, FDA, NIH, scientific journals – you have to deconstruct those institutions to assure there is no knowledge to offset your imaginations!

        Drink bleach! Trump won! Ivermectin works! Vaccines don’t work! The Earth is not warming – er, now it is – but it’s natural! Whites are superior! Communists are trying to replace white Christian hegemony! Our border is open! Biden made millions from Ukraine! Putin just wants to block the re-emergence of Nazis!

        Professor of fantasy…

          Intentionally posting again so Rimjob can read it twice.

          Rimjob is like a lot of so-called progressives. If someone has a different opinion that he can’t directly counter with factual discourse he stomps his fat feet and tosses a little hissy fit and lies about other’s motivations.

          Bwaha! Lolgfy
