32-year-old Charlie is a long-COVID patient living in San Francisco. After he was infected with COVID-19 in 2020, Charlie developed persistent breathing difficulties, fatigue and memory loss, resulting in him becoming disabled.

CGTN Stringer invited Charlie to talk about how his life and work changed with long COVID. He said that long COVID patients are a group of disabled people being neglected. In his opinion, the U.S. government hasn’t issued a public health warning against long COVID, leading to the public’s ignorance of the prevalence and severity of long COVID, resulting in a greater public health disaster.
