Good episode? Give it some love!
The government has announced that by the end of the month, it will open 40 clinics dedicated to helping patients with long-COVID.

But the disease still remains a mystery to many medical professionals, with a lot of questions which still have no answers.  

Who will get it? What are the symptoms and is it possible to fully recover from this debilitating condition that is, in many cases, destroying people's lives? 

In this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Ashna Hurynag speaks to Sophie Evans, a 28-year-old nurse, whose life has been turned upside down after she was diagnosed with long-COVID. 

We also speak to Professor Tim Spector from Kings College London, who has led one of the only studies into long-COVID, which outlines who is most at risk. 

Plus Dr Nisreen Alwan tells us why she has signed a letter, calling on the government to better its research and surveillance of the condition.
