An Iowan's COVID-19 Long Haul
COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have continued to trend down in the past couple of weeks here in Iowa.
Those who’ve contracted COVID-19 and suffered from significant flu-like symptoms or a loss of smell have mostly been able to get back to normal health.
But, as we’ve been hearing, some people infected with COVID-19 continue to suffer health issues for weeks, or even months. These people are the so-called COVID-19 long-haulers.
On this edition of River to River, you'll get to know one Iowan whose health has been severely affected by COVID-19 over a period of months.
