Nair spoke to PIX11 News about her experience with COVID-19 and, when she realized she was a “long-hauler” and what advice she has for someone who may be encountering the “long-haul” stage.

She also discussed the group, Survivor Corps, which connects, supports, educates and mobilizes COVID-19 survivors with all medical, scientific and academic research to help them recover.
