    If you are suffering from anxiety and depression from not being able to work not being able to pay your bills feeling trapped with no way out no light at the end of the tunnel missing your girlfriend or boyfriend mother and father siblings relations being forced to wear a mask not being able to socialize because everyone is 2m away not able to go for a coffee or a pint or enjoy a meal or a movie or a match or a holiday because the utter tyranny foisted on us by NPHET it's because you have long covid.

    They think we are stupid.

    Why wouldn't they since so many actually believe a virus with a 0.03% death rate requires a level of tyranny that would make the Gestapo's eyes water?

    Between that and the sinusitis is a sympton of covid, I've clearly been suffering from covid and long covid for the last 15 years.

    Old people are dying from dehydration starvation neglect and utter depair in so-called care homes and nursing homes at the hands of the HSE and their deaths are being put down as COVID 19!

    The problem with this long COVID concept is that it's all a bit watery.

    If you have tens of millions of cases of COVID-19, inevitably you will find correlations between different people and the virus. But as we know, correlation does not equal causation.

    Now what's happening, quite a lot, is that anyone with any symptoms whatsoever is attributing all symptoms to COVID-19. If someone has muscle aches months after the virus, instead of concluding "I don't know the cause", they say, "It's long COVID".

    Now we are seeing the same phenomenon with depression etc. - attributing it to the virus rather than the far more likely cause that economic deprivation is leading to mood suppression.

    That's not to say that post-viral syndromes do not exist. They do - as they do for many other viruses. But it is far too early to be drawing robust conclusions as to what really constitutes LONG COVID.

    You can’t say stuff like that without providing backup in fairness.

    Unless they have a control group then I not convinced by this.
    Do people who had Covid months ago feel anxious and depressed right now? Yes probably.
    Do people who never had Covid feel anxious and depressed right now. Also yes.

    Majority of people I know are struggling right now. Friends are finding themselves snapping at the kids, need a break from their partners. Struggling to sleep, no motivation. I would say my own mindset isn’t as positive as it was a month ago.
    People who have previously had Covid will be struggling from same problems as rest of population.

    Obviously the OP doesn't know the difference between something being a "symptom" of a condition....

    As opposed to the symptom BEING the condition.

    Send me some evidence of this via PM and in the meantime stay out of this thread.

    'One of the symptoms of Long Covid that we are seeing is anxiety and depression'

    'A lot of sinusitis does seem to be Covid'

    'If you have flu-like symptoms, it’s unlikely to be anything but Covid-19'

    'it is worrying the number who are turning up positive without symptoms.'

    They must know we're laughing at them, right?

    They're correct it does happen, we were all told to leave my grandmothers side in the nursing home at around 10pm one evening as nothing more could be done. My cousin was protesting wanting to stay, I whispererd her to go but said I'll come back when everyone is gone, I came back an hour later, spent the night getting tiny bits of water into her mouth all night as she was gasping for a drink. At one point I thought I'd killed her as she started gagging on the water luckily enough the opposite happened.
    Called my dad the following morning to say his mum is up having tea and toast, she lived on for over another year and got to hold some more of her great grandkids.
    I have no doubt the decision not to give her any more water or oxygen would have resulted in her death that night.

    You better have some evidence for that claim buddy boy or else quit posting this sort of hysterical ranting bull****e.:( Disgraceful post.:mad: You should hang your head in shame.

    Such a troll. Most nursing homes in Ireland I've ever been in provided great service to their residents.

    Evidence suggets that when people mention the nazis in the first post, they're not looking for a reasoned debate.

    Ah long covid. Because never before in human illness history has anybody suffered fatigue or other after effects that dragged on for several months.

    Given 0.1% of the population have already died of(/with) this, and in terms of recorded numbers of cases the figure is 1.7% (so the actual mortality rate is somewhere between those two percentages), rather than merge it into another thread I'm closing it - It's basically trolling
