Doctors say they’re bracing for a “tsunami” of “COVID long haulers”
As the coronavirus pandemic continues across the U.S., experts are noticing another wave of the pandemic with what they’re calling “COVID long-haulers,” or people suffering debilitating symptoms months after having the coronavirus.
Doctors say they are seeing many people who have recovered from COVID but are finding themselves still not well.
Caitlin Barber, a 27-year-old newlywed, is one of these “COVID long haulers,” who led a healthy lifestyle with her husband and spent time training as a runner. She was also a dietician at a nursing home.
“We were living the newlywed dream, you know and loving life,” Barber told “Good Morning America.”
