Proposal to treat people with long COVID by zapping their brains with electricity.

So far only small handfuls of long COVID patients have been treated with favorable results, but now larger trial studies will be performed using different techniques for electical stimulation.

On the other hand: there isn't a clear explanation of why such stimulation would help since we do not yet understand the reasons only some people have long COVID following the initial infection.

Why isn't he selling urine as a cure? He's missing a business opportunity here, unless he's monetizing his advice in another way.

Probably bankrolled by some Republicans

People that do not succeed in politics usually tell the truth too often.

According to the media, this is a practice thats been going on for centuries, but there's no real proof it helps.

I’d do it, if I had an International Space Station kind of filter… maybe.

But I already got 2 shots and I’m ready for the 3rd one whenever it’s available

This may encourage some people to vaccinate and wear masks and all that
