Ohio’s MetroHealth Establishes COVID-19 Long-Haulers Clinic

Cleveland.com reports that Ohio’s MetroHealth has created a special clinic for patients who continue to suffer from COVID-19 symptoms after their initial infection. These patients are known as “long-haulers,” and now they can seek help. The clinic is directed by Dr. Nora Singer, who says she’s seen several patients with symptoms of COVID that lasted for months. Long-haulers typically experience symptoms like brain fog, shortness of breath, depression, and insomnia, but can also have more serious symptoms related to the heart, lungs, and kidneys. Researchers are working hard to figure out what exactly causes post-COVID-19 syndrome and how symptoms can be treated. The Ohio clinic began by treating employees, but has since opened to treat patients as well.
