Post-COVID medical treatment becomes specialty | Columnists

In Northeast Pennsylvania, thousands of people are recuperating from COVID-19.

Others will be added to this list in the months ahead.

Many are experiencing physical and emotional effects that can be improved with interventions from rehabilitation experts. This is an emerging specialty in post-acute care and one that is becoming necessary to help citizens recover from the lasting effects of coronavirus.

Across the globe, millions of people have been infected and affected by the COVID-19 virus. Some have had mild illnesses; others have had more significant courses with long-lasting residual problems.

These lingering difficulties extend beyond just respiratory trouble. Many patients suffer fatigue, endurance issues, muscle weakness, reduced joint mobility, gait imbalance, muscle and nerve pain, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and limitations with activities of daily living. All of us know someone in this situation.

This is the live blog for the San Francisco 49ers’ Week 15 road game against the Dallas Cowboys. I will update this with information and analysis from my living room.

8:00 There’s breaking news. Jimmy Garoppolo almost certainly won’t play again this season, but George Kittle might, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Apparently, Garoppolo’s ankle injury has not fully recovered and there’s a risk he would reinjure it if he were to play again this season. Plus, both he and the 49ers want him healthy this offseason, presumably so the 49ers can trade him at his highest value.
