Why does nobody seem to take Long Covid seriously?

Why does nobody seem to take Long Covid seriously?

The govt says they hear long covid patients and understands the risks etc. But they do nothing for it, pitiful funding dripped out over years, achieving nothing. And they also do nothing to educate the public how to avoid it. Not do they do anything to help with things such as ventilation improvements, HEPA filters etc. They seem to be sleep walking into a national health crisis in the name of keeping the money flowing. If th e buidlings had filters and people understood ventilation needs, and wore masks etc, then we could avoid a lot of ill helath. And it’s not just LC it’s the other long term effects, organ damage etc. Which we only discover as research ( mainly in other countries than UK, certainly not here) continues. NOTE: Aspects of this question were discussed in Committee on the 12th September 2023.
