I read your article about the lingering effects of covid 19, great article & should be read by everyone. Very spooky similar to the lingering effects I experienced with strep A. I got from a spider bite about 3.5 decades ago. Strep A (referred to as flesh eating disease) was carried carried on the outside of the stinger. It damaged my lymph system by scarring inside the tubes. Like so many young peopLe now I thought I could fully recover. I did not.
