Long Covid Podcast

Jackie Baxter

The Podcast by and for Long Covid sufferers. Long Covid is estimated to affect at around 1 in 5 people infected with Covid-19. Some of these people recover within a few months, but there are many who have been suffering for well over a year.​There is currently no cure for Long Covid, and the thousands of people still ill have been searching for answers for a long time. In this podcast I hope to explore some of the problems and possible solutions, mixed with personal experience from those who know it best - the Long Haulers. The Long Covid Podcast is currently self-funded.
