Betsy Ladyzhets is an independent health, science and data journalist who has been covering the coronavirus pandemic, including long Covid. While serving as a journalism fellow at MuckRock, she co-wrote an investigative report for STAT, a well-known health and medical news site, about the US National Institutes of Health’s problem-plagued $1.2 billion long Covid program, called RECOVER. The story was published last month. Betsy and I recently spoke about the article and about the NIH’s flawed approach to long Covid.
