New $40 million NIH study hopes to solve mysteries behind childrens long Covid-19 – CNN

"I was super sick," Ava said. "I had it bad." She couldn't breathe. She had stomach problems and other infections, including mononucleosis, that eventually sent her to the ER.

The Bruggers are optimistic, but doctors still don't know a lot about long Covid-19 in young people. It's such a new condition it doesn't even ha...
