Long Covid is something that vaccination deniers and anti mask wearers need to take into account when they refuse to take reasonable precautions to prevent their likelihood of becoming spreaders. Their excuse is generally "its my body and I'll be the judge of what I do regarding my risk of getting covid". That's their right. But they don't have the right to put others at risk
What they don't want to acknowledge is that in making themselves at higher risk of getting this disease they also will infect others. The prevalence of long covid is something these deniers don't want to consider. They think covid is just a bit of flu and that there is no long lasting impact.
For them getting covid and possibly suffering from long covid is their problem.
For the other people that they may infect and could end up with long covid its a VERY SERIOUS ISSUSE.
Until covid is truly tamped down and the impacts well understood these deniers should be ostracized and kept away from others who may suffer from serious long term consequence of the deniers arrogance.
