Covid isn’t going anywhere. And neither is Long Covid, or as it’s now called, Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2, or PASC. We sit down with pulmonologist, critical care physician, and emerging PASC expert Dr. Andi Levine from the University of Maryland School of Medicine to learn all about this challenging syndrome and how front-line clinicians can best approach its workup and treatment.
