‘Hidden second wave on way’

Irish hospitals are seeing a ‘hidden wave of outpatients’ struggling with the after-effects of COVID-19, according to a leading consultant.

Just over six months since the first case of the virus was reported in Ireland, doctors are now treating people with a range of symptoms including chronic headaches, fatigue, hair loss, neurological issues and cardiac conditions.

These patients are being named ‘long haulers’ and marked as having post-COVID syndrome.

This story ran in the Irish Mail on Sunday, and on Extra.ie
