The Washington Post published an editorial last Saturday about how researchers are warning that COVID-19 may lead to long-term, debilitating illnesses, like myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), in some patients.

The editorial was written by former Washington Post reporter, Brian Vastag, and #MEAction co-founder, Beth Mazur, both of whom have ME.

Many people infected with COVID-19 are reporting that they are not recovering within the expected timeframe. Researchers are expecting that a significant number of COVID-19 patients will go on to develop long-term, post-viral illnesses, including ME.
