When it comes to long COVID, there's a lot of perceived expertise masquerading as actual expertise, and a lot of actual expertise that's being ignored entirely. (My piece on this from earlier this month--> )

Consider this excellent review on possible mechanisms for long-COVID. Some of these hypotheses may be wrong, but this paper is ideas-rich and *citation-rich*. We're not starting from scratch; at minimum, there's a trove of hypotheses to test.

@edyong209 The problem is that it's not just one thing. We know it's neurological but we are not thinking of COVID as it truly is. It destroys everything... so you can have any of 55+ documented symptoms

@edyong209 It's frustrating hacking our way through this jungle. The faux expertise is just as bad as the charlatans promoting quick answers -- for a cost, of course.

@edyong209 Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon in healthcare, either.
