My son 43 has had Long Covid for a year, he was a fit healthy 43 year old who held down a good job and was married with 3 children, he is now got about 10% quality of life. There are about 1.3 million sufferers in the UK and they urgently need help/research to find out how to cure this cruel and debilitating illness. I would so appreciate your signature if this message is allowed. Thanks so much in advance

I am so sorry to hear about your son. I have had ME for a number of years so I am hoping that any research into Long Covid will help the 250,000 ME sufferers in the UK.

I've signed the petition.

Signing a petition is pointless though isn’t it.

Over a million signed a petition opposing to Blair getting a knighthood…..and nothing happened!

I feel for your son though and hope he gets the help he needs.
