Brits describe their long-Covid symptoms that cause crippling pain for months
EXCLUSIVE: We expose the agony of the coronavirus survivors let down by Government as a nurse tells of her six-month virus hell and Matt Hancock fails to aid victims
Up to half a million survivors of coronavirus with crippling long-term symptoms may be the latest victims of government bungling.
One long-Covid sufferer, nurse Sophie Evans, 28, told of her fight to get care and said: “I don’t know how I’m not dead.”
Sophie spoke of her ordeal as Health Secretary Matt Hancock was accused of letting down patients yet again by failing to deliver on promises.
A&E nurse Sophie, 28, spent ten days in hospital and is still on sick leave with long-Covid, with “no end in sight”.
She said: “Every day is a battle, I am constantly in pain. I thought I was going to die. I don’t know how I am not dead.
“It breaks my heart to know there will be more sufferers during a second peak. It’s a horrible place to be.”
As many as 500,000 Brits – including thousands in their 20s and 30s – have severe symptoms months after they became infected.
