For long-haulers, Covid-19 takes a toll on the mind and the body
Forty hours after treating her first coronavirus patient, on March 30, Angela Aston came home to her family with a cough. "Gosh, your throat is scratchy," her husband told her. Right away she knew she had likely been infected with Covid-19. As a nurse practitioner, Aston, 50, was confident she knew how to handle her symptoms, and disappeared to her bedroom to quarantine and rest.
