  1. I feel so sorry for these women. The truth is that in the early months of COVID, people weren’t able to get test and we didn’t start have accurate test until June & July.

      I had bad symptoms back in late February of 2020 but didn’t make the connection til weeks later. The most noticeable characteristic was the body fatigue, but I took good care of myself and luckily got over it in just two days, so I feel bad for anyone who can’t kick it for some reason, that must be awful to wake up every day like that.

    • I have post covid syndrome. It’s been rather daunting. I’m seeing an infectious disease specialist long term. I’ve had ongoing lymph node swelling similar to mumps and measles.

      I know both of these ladies thru the body Politic group I am a part of for long haulers. We all got sick with covid February March 2020 and still deal with residual after effects of covid. Many of us tested negative for Covid-19 because testing was done too late in our illness but me personally I was diagnosed by my physician. I suffer fatigue, headaches and vertigo and it’s been a year since I became ill. Long covid is real and I don’t wish it on anyone

    • @Rachel Johnson I’m off to the NIH soon.

    • Covid long haulers are ticking time bombs. Magatrds better watch their back lol

    • @Jerry P Covid long haulers are ticking time bombs. Magatrds better watch their back lol

    • @Joe King well then Bill Gates gets his wish of depopulation .
      I don’t subscribe

    • @Jerry P tell that to those who have love ones who have died from this disease, but then again you must be Trump.

    • Indeed. We do. However these people thought theirs would go away too because it went away for the lady and then she is dealing with lasting effects. It’s just that this isn’t taken seriously in all places. Some places shutdown and furloughed workers and some places remained wide open.

    This is why getting it doesn’t always mean death, it could be a slow destruction of your body.. It’s so sad.. I’m so glad that my husband and I got through it without lasting effects.. Getting it though was freaking 5x’s worse than the flu.. No hospital stay, yet they said ours was mild but felt HORRIFIC! 😳😳

  4. The legacy of Trump continues.

    • @R Wags I’d rather the stimulus aka democratic failed state bailout didn’t happen. As far as Covid I had it tested positive gave me a headache big deal .

    • @Jerry P yes china started and put it out. Magatrds didnt put it out, they kept fanning the flames. Covid long haulers are ticking time bombs. Magatrds better watch their back lol

    • @Jerry P  BTW: The Covid failed state happened on Donnys watch.
      As to your Covid headache, you under estimate it’s impacts… we’re all suffering from a headache, thanks to your delusions.

    • @R Wags you clowns crack me up !

    • @R Wags you’ve just got gas .

  5. Wow I hope they find something to get rid of these side affects!!!!( Prayers Up!🙏)

  6. I wish you both well.

    God bless these beautiful women, God bless you for airing this, bless all who suffer invisibly.

    I have effects from a long term virus and relate to everything being said here. One of the fruits of suffering is compassion and just maybe we are becoming more compassionate. ✌🏼

  8. Every day, l look at the COVID charts. There is a column labeled “RECOVERED.” Every number in that column is a lie. The honest ones put an “NA” in that box.

  10. Stay strong ladies, especially in regards to the study for Black Americans 🇺🇸

  11. As a former Covid patient, I thank u for this segment and the work of ur guests.

  12. This is what I am experiencing! This is a living nightmare!

  13. That teacher could take an antibody test.

  14. Which type of Covid test did she have?

  15. Hello medical community, research! 🤨

  16. I feel you, me lady…….. I’m a long hauler too……..A year on, I haven’t recovered fully from the virus. I have been back and forth to the hospital having various heart tests which have come back normal.

  17. “Financial Privilege”? This is what we are calling being successful now? These people are going to guilty you guys out of everything! HaHaha

    Sad that the health needs of millions have been poorly met at best. Even sadder there’s no help for people who have become literally disabled by CV-19.

  20. When we see a person come in for a job interview with nose and lip piercings we disqualify them immediately. If a woman comes in with a bald head and is not sick, we disqualify this look as well.
