When it comes to covid, one of the biggest unknowns is how long symptoms will linger. While some people only experience them for a couple of weeks others are struggling for months. A new study may show hospitalized patients might have a longer recovery. According to a new preprint study nearly 70% of previously hospitalized covid patients still had symptoms five months out from their initial diagnosis with most experiencing an average of nine ongoing symptoms at that time. This includes aching muscles, fatigue, physically slowing down, impaired sleep quality and joint pain. It’s not just physical symptoms as well. More than a quarter of patients in this area had the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Clearly, covid is not just a disease that affects your lungs, it affects your entire body.

Daily Covid-19 Minute: Ketchup ShortageThroughout the pandemic there have been shortages of many household staples including toilet paper, sanitizing wipes, and paper towels to name a few. But the latest to fall short of demand is ketchup! Ketchup retail sales were over $1 billion dollars in 2020, about 15% higher than 2019. What would account for the spike? First, many restaurants switched over to delivery during the pandemic and handed out ketchup packets to customers with their food. Ketchup packets were also used by diners at restaurants because the CDC advised against using shared ketchup bottles. Heinz, which holds nearly 70% of the US retail market for ketchup, says they’re playing catch-up. They’re opening two new manufacturing lines this month and hope to increase production by 25% over the course of 2021. Meaning they’ll be making more than 12 billion ketchup packets a year. So, for all the ketchup lovers out there, do not fear. Help is on the way.
