#MEAction sent out a press release last week to 300 major publications in the US introducing them to the long haulers who are experiencing symptoms of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), specifically post-exertional malaise.

We alerted the press to the terrifying possibility that 1 million more Americans could develop ME following COVID-19 at the current rate of the pandemic over the next two years.
