Life after Covid-19: A long road to recovery

FRANCE IN FOCUS © France 24 screengrab

In this week’s show, we put the focus on the thousands of French people who contracted Covid-19 and came out the other side. We look at the long road to recovery that lies ahead for some, as well as lingering symptoms for others. We also talk to an infectious diseases specialist about immunity, vaccines and discrimination Covid-19 ‘survivors’ may face. We end by hearing the heartwarming story of 103-year-old Hélène-François, who beat the virus after three months in hospital.
