Struggling with long Covid is no joke. Here, third-year student Georgina describes her experience, one year on since first contracting the virus in March 2020.

When Covid-19 first hit the news last year, no one had any idea just how catastrophic it would be. Today, there have been more than 2.5 million deaths and almost 115 million cases globally since it was first discovered.

And while millions are said to have ‘recovered’, an estimated 10% of these people are suffering long term illness. Including me.

I am a 20-year-old, third-year student and I am one of the long Covid sufferers.
