Who is Tracey Spicer?

Tracey Spicer contracted Covid in January while on vacation on the Gold Coast and has yet to fully recover three months later.

The 55-year-old told nine.com.au that housework is “absolutely crushing”.

He can barely walk around the block, cooking a meal expends a significant amount of energy and has suffered from ‘debilitating exhaustion’.

“I had four very worrying weeks where he was in and out of the hospital with chest pain, I thought he was having a heart attack,” he said.

“I felt like a shadow of my old self.”

Spicer noted a lack of clear advice among health professionals when a person believes they have COVID for a long time.

Recognized by the World Health Organization and considered a disease in the United States, prolonged covid is generally considered when a coronavirus infection lasts more than two months.

Common symptoms include fatigue, ‘brain fog’ and shortness of breath, among others.

“We need a government-led public information campaign to inform health workers and doctors as well as the public about the symptoms and what they should do about them,” Spicer suggested.

The Walkley Award-winning newsreader said a GP advised her to overcome crippling fatigue, while a Covid expert at St Vincent’s Hospital gave her completely opposite advice.

The expert warned her to cut all exercise out of her routine or risk “feeling like this for years.”

Spicer was bedridden for two weeks when she first contracted covid. While some of her symptoms, such as a persistent cough, eased over time, she has seen little improvement in her overall health.

With almost 4.5 million known cases of Covid in Australia since the pandemic began, there is very little information on how many people could be suffering from Covid for a long time.

Deakin University modeling estimates that as many as 300,000 people could already be suffering.

The Australian government is urging anyone who is concerned about having Covid for a long time to visit their GP.
