We now know an incredible amount about the COVID-19 virus. But long Covid symptoms and treatment options remain a blind spot. This week, we check in on a group of patients and doctors from the Carolinas who we’ve been following for over a year in order to see how we’re adapting to this second silent pandemic.

Featuring:

  • Jason deBruyn, Health Reporter at WUNC-North Carolina Public Radio.
  • Eleanor Spicer Rice, science writer and long COVID patient
  • Dr. John Baratta, Founder and Co-director of the UNC Health COVID Recovery Clinic
  • Justin Foster, former Clemson University football player and long COVID patient
