On the 25 March, Jackie Brambles was standing in for Kay Adams on the BBC Radio Scotland Mornings show and held a phone-in with Dr Punam Krishnan around the issues of Long Covid.
The show was in general very helpful. It reviewed, for example, the recent Long Covid study from the University of Leicester last week which concluded that seven in ten patients hospitalised with COVID-19 were not fully recovered five months after discharge and had symptoms similar to ME/CFS.
Dr Krishnan also related her own experiences of Covid-19 and discussed the similarities between Long Covid and ME/CFS and how the focus has helpfully shifted towards these post-viral conditions in light of the pandemic.
