Who Are Long-Haulers?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has named this syndrome as post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC), and you will often see it called Long COVID or Post COVID Conditions. People living with these symptoms are sometimes referred to as COVID-19 long-haulers.

Long-haulers are individuals who still have persistent symptoms for 4 weeks or longer that are either continuous or arise weeks or months after initially recovering from COVID-19.

Many will suffer for months, and report prolonged, multisystem involvement and significant disability.

Some of the Long-Hauler symptoms include:

Tiredness or fatigue

Difficulty thinking or concentrating ("brain fog")

Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

Dizziness on standing

Cough

Headache

Chest or stomach pain

Change in smell or taste
