Washington Post: Don’t just look at covid-19 fatality rates. Look at people who survive — but don’t entirely recover.. “At least seven elite college athletes have developed myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle that can have severe consequences, including sudden death. An Austrian doctor who treats scuba divers reported that six patients, who had only mild covid-19 infections, seem to have significant and permanent lung damage. Social media communities sprang up of people who are still suffering, months after they were infected, with everything from chronic fatigue and ‘brain fog’ to chest pain and recurrent fevers. Now, data is coming in behind the anecdotes, and while it’s preliminary, it’s also ‘concerning,’ says Clyde Yancy, chief of cardiology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.”
