Long-Haulers

COVID-19 isn't just a two-week disease. It can sometimes have far-reaching affects long after this window of initial sickness is done. They are the stories of long-haulers. This series was originally written for COVID-19 Survivor Diaries, a project by photographer and videographer Morgana Wingard. Through portraits and first-person accounts, the project documents the world's shared experience of the global COVID-19 pandemic through the lens of people who survived.
