‘More attention’ needed on long Covid, says doctor diagnosed with the condition

Presenter

We spoke to Dr Nathalie MacDermott, who is a paediatrics infectious diseases expert at King’s College London. At the start of the pandemic she was regularly on this programme helping us understand it.

She caught the virus and has now been diagnosed with Long Covid. She had been fit and healthy, working long shifts as a doctor on the wards. Now she can now only walk a few hundred metres without stopping.
