Five people spoke to us in detail this week to tell us how Covid has changed their lives.
How Covid can change your life

They told us what it was like when they were diagnosed and how they are feeling now.

All five of them still have lasting effects of Covid months after their diagnosis.

They talk openly and honestly about the impact Covid has had on their mental health and day to day lives.
