COVID-19 long-haulers: The pandemic’s forgotten patients (Marketplace)

CBC News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19 long-haulers: The pandemic’s forgotten patients (Marketplace)” – below is their description.

CBC Marketplace asked more than 1,000 Canadians with long COVID about their access to care. Over 60 per cent of COVID-19 long-haulers said in the questionnaire they aren’t getting the medical treatment they need and many others reported they are stuck paying hundreds of dollars — some spending $10,000 or more.
