How are you holding up?
Heart problems, joint pain, neurological "glitches", memory problems, recurrent fever... These are all symptoms listed by people with Long Covid (i.e. COVID-19 symptoms that last more than 20 days). Many patients are then unable to work. However, this condition is not yet recognised as an "illness".
And what about you? Have you been able to return to work? If so, how are you coping at work, is it difficult? If not, are you on sick leave? What are the current regulations for patients?
