That article was from SEVEN MONTHS ago, when the virus had only been in the US for FOUR MONTHS. There's no way in 3 months of spread that they could determine if ANYONE, much less what percentage of people would actually have long term problems from the virus. You're just grasping at straws.
As for those that "have minor symptoms, later on much more damage is found", again, enough time hasn't even elapsed to determine that. And if you notice, you hear very little now about long-Covid, because its such a small percentage of cases.
The thing is, for every ONE PERSON that's written about in these articles, there's 100,000 people out there that had mild or no symptoms and DONT have long term issues.
