The Long Haul with COVID-19: My story of fight against long COVID
Born and raised in Essex, in the east of England, Louis is a 24-year-old advertising executive full of life and energy. He is an inspirational speaker for an online community on YouTube. Louis contracted COVID-19 in the summer of 2020; while he is no longer contagious, the long-term symptoms of COVID-19 affect Louis's daily life in many ways, including muscle ache, fatigue and periodic sore throats. In addition, his taste and smell have not fully recovered. Despite this, he still lives an active life and tries to stay as healthy as possible, and he shares his personal and physical experiences online to inspire others experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
