University Of California hospitals create COVID-19 ‘long hauler’ task force

University of California hospitals have formed a task force on “long hauler” symptoms. Dr. [Jaclyn Leong] is the co-director of the UCI Health’s COVID Recovery Clinic, which has been seeing hundreds of patients. “We all work together and address each symptom by organ system, so if you have mental health issues, we have psychiatrists and mental health providers that can help along the way or we have physical therapists if you’re having a lot of muscle weakness or muscle aching,” she said.
