Six weeks ago, I heard there were kids getting Covid and not getting better. Like the adults we've been hearing about, they were long-haulers. At the time, I couldn't find a single article about it. So I decided to do it myself #LongCovidKids #longhaulers
When I reached out to @CenterRes to ask if he knew of anyone studying long-haul in children, he said no, but asked me more about what I was reporting on. When I told him, he said "Oh my God, we should try to capture this." They mobilized and created this:
Microbiologist @microbeminded2 said "Parents should know that every well-studied bacterial or viral pathogen has a chronic syndrome associated with it," while cautioning we simply don't know yet whether the long-haulers will become life-longers. #LongCovid
