The 2019-2020 viral pandemic has led to hundreds of thousands developing COVID-19, a significant number of these continue to have symptoms many weeks or months later, known as long COVID. These "long haulers" come from many different walks of life, ages, and races, including people without pre-existing conditions who had mild COVID-19.
