Diagnosed with Covid on January 6 – a date that is “engraved in [her] brain” – Megan Higgins, 25, revealed that months following on from her infection, she wasn’t getting any better. “I kind of thought that you spend two weeks in bed suffering from a nasty virus, you’ve got to expect to be a bit tired,” she said. “But weeks and months went by, and I wasn’t getting better.”

Anytime Megan would do any activities that would improve her fitness, she’d feel worse.

“I used to horse ride, run, walk the dog a lot,” Megan reminisced.

But, since suffering from long Covid, she’s been too tired to do anything physical.
