Long Covid revolutionaries, a magazine for the Black left, betrayed trans athletes, and more

April 14, 2023
“People who have developed long Covid in the past two years face an intimidating slew of online information and misinformation on the disease,” write Fiona Lowenstein and Ryan Prior.

For our most recent issue, Lowenstein and Prior, an editor and author of books about long Covid, highlight the millions of dollars missing from research into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS), an infection-associated complex chronic illness.

While ME/CFS sufferers have been asking for research into their disease since 2016, Covid-19 has put the problem into relief, as the majority of people with ME/CFS today are also Covid-19 long-haulers. “Ultimately,” Lowenstein and Prior say, “the long Covid advocacy movement’s ability to address these systemic issues will determine its success.”
