CV Central - 5/11/2020 - "Symptoms and Syndromes: A Longer Look at Covid and Health"
Our sixty-sixth episode looks into the long term dangers of Covid as we reassess the symptoms in this continually evolving disease. From fever, cough, and breathlessness, to more obscure symptoms like loss of smell and taste, discolored toes, and diarrhea, we look at what these might mean. Furthermore, we look at what people experience after getting sick, using a new study to strengthen our autoimmune argument as we look at clotting and inflammation potentially causing a host of symptoms. Survivors are already suffering from being forgotten and neglected, and in the rush to move forward, we risk moving past not just the threat of the disease, but the needs of our people as well.
