    Health Matters. Long COVID with Dr Adrian Wentzel. Season 3. Episode 26.

    The COVID-19 pandemic will always be a post-script in our collective lived experience. While for the most part it is
    an experience we can mostly confine to the history books, Long COVID has lingered long after the multiple waves if infection.

    From fatigue and shortness of breath to
    cognitive issues – it’s a complex and challenging condition.

    It’s also so difficult to get an accurate picture of its impact, due to its elusive nature but multiple reports, studies and conversations we’ve all had with friends and family, make it clear that a significant number of individuals have experienced lingering symptoms.

    To help unravel some of the mystery is Dr Adrian Wentzel - Specialist Anaesthesiologist at St Georges Hospital and Medical Forum Theatres in Gqeberha, South Africa.
