For Boris Johnson, a Grim Premiership That No One Foresaw
“What on earth happened to the freedom-loving, twinkly-eyed, Rabelaisian character I voted for,” asked one columnist.
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
Many patients who have recovered from coronavirus appear to still have problems after almost six months. The Longfonds [Lung Fund] and Maastricht University have followed more than a thousand patients since the start of the coronavirus crisis.
“More than half of them have six or more complaints,” said Michael Rutgers, director of the Longfonds, in the NOS Radio 1 Journaal. “And nine out of ten are not yet free of complaints. That is quite alarming. It is not the case that everyone who has had coronavirus will keep these complaints. It concerns this specific group.”
Rutgers mentions complaints such as fatigue, muscle pain, shortness of breath and headache. Most of the participants in the study (94 percent) were not in hospitals: they had mild complaints. The average age of the respondents is 48 years and 86 percent of them said they were in good health before the coronavirus infection.
“It still needs to be investigated further, we are far from there yet. I would conclude that we should not be too frivolous about the period after the acute coronavirus complaints. It may be that you end up with misery for a long time. I think that those people need to be properly guided.”
