To reduce the risk of further spread, a Post-Covid Rehab Recovery Center needs to be founded in Austin, Texas with every type of specialty doctor to include, but not limited to: neurologist, gastroenterologist, pulmonologist, ophthalmologist, rheumatologist, infectious disease doctors from UT, internist, etc. This would reduce the spread for those who the ER is sending away as non-critical to specialists and for whom primary care providers are, kindly, at a loss for how to treat. Those who are ill post-Covid and testing negative, are still having recurrent fevers. How do you know we are not contagious? Post-Covid syndrome is now a recognizable syndrome with diagnosis codes. We can’t wait any longer for the people to hear us. We go to bed not knowing if we will wake up tomorrow.

We have finally been recognized by the WHO and CDC and are completing surveys and polls which are informing the CDC of the nearly 100 symptoms of Covid. Please reference the C-19 survey. If the WHO and CDC recognize us, why doesn’t the mayor?

Mayor Steve Adler of Austin, Texas has been contacted regarding this matter by myself several times. One of his assistant’s comments was, “You should quarantine... you should be in a hospital. Hospitals should help you.”

Translation to long-haulers: go die in a hole, you are too sick for anyone to want to help you but not critical enough to be admitted. We are scared of catching it and would rather you die in pain with low-quality of life than try to help you.

“If you think COVID is not a big deal, you might want to read this.

It doesn’t end with a negative test. Covid-19 survivors are discovering scary long-term effects of the disease. Strolls may feel like climbing Mount Everest. Brain fog and problems with short-term memory make reading, writing and speaking harder. Chronic fatigue, breathlessness, and muscle pain turn simple everyday tasks into difficult chores. Returning to work is out of the question.

In Europe, where the peak of Covid-19 infections has now passed, thousands of people say they are far from fully recovered. Health authorities are starting to offer rehabilitation services to survivors suffering from wide-ranging effects of the disease.

"What surprises me the most is that even the patients that have not spent any time in the ICU are extremely feeble: there is no evidence of a cardiological or pulmonary problem, but they are not even able to walk up a flight of stairs," said Dr. Piero Clavario, director of a post-Covid rehab institute attended in Genoa, Italy. "Most show a serious muscle weakness.

When the pandemic first ravaged the world, it was mostly older people who were thought to be the most at risk. However, more younger people are now getting infected. And many are reporting lingering health problems months after contracting the disease.

Research now indicates that Covid-19 is a multi-system disease that can damage not only the lungs, but the kidneys, liver, heart, brain, nervous system, skin and gastrointestinal tract. And while it is still true that the majority of cases are relatively mild, roughly 20% suffer severe symptoms.

"One out of five patients is going to get a severe form of the disease," said Dr. Luis Ostrosky-Zeichner, a professor of medicine at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School. "This is a lottery you do not want to win."’

There are severe lasting and life-threatening complications from Covid for about 20% of people infected. That number may be higher as there are many who have tested negative due to the inefficiency of the tests (30% false negative.) The long-hauler support group on Facebook and Survivor Corps groups contain more than 20,000 people across the world attempting to live through the recovery of Covid. There need to be INFORMED doctors of EVERY specialty in one recovery center, such as has been done at Mount Sainai in New York. While long-haulers have been suffering relapses for months, it is not a clear concept as to whether they are contagious or not. Those long-haulers are being sent to every specialty to follow up on their complications. This means when the fevers come and go, aren’t they still contagious?
