We are writing the Covid book as we’re reading it so new information comes regularly. Sometimes, that makes us change what we’ve been doing (see: masks, school shutdowns). Other times, it changes nothing at all.
Apparently, people now have a name for symptomatic COVID infections that are not quick hits and not long Covid: medium Covid.
People with medium Covid have lingering symptoms for weeks. Ok. I know this is different because I can deal with the same cold for weeks that my kid recovers from in a day. But is it? Really?
Covid is worse than a cold for some and Covid can take away your ability to get out of bed, smell fire, breathe easily. So maybe that’s the difference. Still, I’m not so sure we need a “medium Covid.”
