Dr. Katharine Clouser is sounding an alarm about rising cases of “long COVID” in New Jersey. The Hackensack Meridian pediatrician says a growing group of so-called “long haulers," including children, keep battling symptoms like fatigue and brain fog months after their initial infection. Research shows it hits 10-20% of kids who got COVID-19, usually about three months after their infection.
