“Like everyone else, I’m trying to figure out how cautious I should be around COVID. It seems like the most important concern for young vaccinated people like myself is the risk of Long COVID symptoms, so I spent a while trying to figure out what those were. My basic conclusion is that everyone else is right, that news stories on this phenomenon seem remarkably good, and that there’s not much we know for sure beyond the simple summary you’ve probably already heard. … Long COVID is probably a lot of different things, some of which are boring and obvious, others of which are still kind of mysterious.” (09/02/21)
