Will the Vaccine prevent Covid Long Haul
#3
Agree with the herd immunity as a mechanism to prevent long haul.

I heard on NPR this AM that some fraction of asymptomatic people have been found to have lung and other organ damage. It seems like they identified people from antibodies and then ran some tests on them for typical COVID damage. Admittedly, very little is known because not a lot of research has been done on this. I do not recall a percentage or anything like that. It is scary to even find a few with organ damage after asymptomatic infection. All of Snorlax' questions apply to this.

Also, this changes the equation regarding whether low risk people should get the vaccine. (1) As M_T points out, we need herd immunity to eliminate all these long haul issues, and (2) we may find that young people do get organ damage. Perhaps we'll know more in a few months.
