Covid-19, as a novel coronavirus, has been known to cause various degrees of illness, diverse symptoms, and long recoveries. Last summer, we discussed “E-Patients and Covid-19” with e-Patient Dave deBronkart and Dr. Marge Benham-Hutchins.. In this episode, we talk to Austin-based consultant, strategist, and investor, Matt Cohen, about his long-haul Covid-19 experience. Matt became ill on June 12, 2020, and is still in a process of recovery. He had a mild fever and flu-like symptoms for less than 24 hours, then developed pneumonitis (fluid in the lungs) a week later. He’s since tested negative, but he’s been in a process of slow recovery that still continues.
In our talk, Matt mentions Survivor Corps, a grassroots movement connecting, supporting, educating, motivating and mobilizing COVID-19 Survivors to support all medical, scientific and academic research, help stem the tide of this pandemic and assist in the national recovery.
He also mentioned a video available via YouTube, “How Does COVID-19 Testing Actually Work?”
