Omicron brings OC programs treating ‘long COVID’ a fresh wave of patients

At UCI Health, which offers its “COVID recovery service” program at three locations around the county, “we are seeing more interest within the last month,” said Dr. Jaclyn Leong, the program’s co-director, adding, “every time there seems to be a surge, about four to six weeks later we see more interest in our clinic.” … Many people who get the virus will fully recover in days or weeks, but Leong said for every 10 people diagnosed with COVID-19, “at minimum, one of them will get long COVID symptoms.”
