Podcast: Pilots & Long COVID

Even as the world moves toward a post-pandemic reality, COVID-19 continues to present new challenges, including “Long COVID,” a condition in which patients continue to experience symptoms long after their initial infection is resolved. “It seems like every day we’re learning more and more about this still-new condition, and we are seeing more symptoms that could be potentially related to long COVID,” notes Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Greg Vanichkachorn.
