"Somewhere around the three-year mark of the pandemic, I began to hear a lot of
people say they were done with COVID – meaning they were tired of the
lockdowns, tired of the precautions, tired of living in fear and eager to
resume their prepandemic lives. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is not done with us.

Fifty-seven people died of the infection last week and the peak number of
people hospitalized with COVID this spring was higher than during the first
prevaccine wave in spring 2020. More alarmingly, studies are showing that long
COVID, or post-COVID-19 syndrome, is far more prevalent, multifarious and
disabling than most in the medical community expected. Millions of Canadians
who caught the virus are walking wounded today. They’re sick, they’re down,
they don’t know why. Nothing shows up in the usual tests. It’s probably some
form of long COVID."
