Wanda Brandon of Terry first tested positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 1.
Some nine months later, her recovery is still a work in progress.
“People think you have COVID and get over it,” said Brandon, 58, the former assistant director for child nutrition at Hinds County Schools. “But there is so much lingering stuff. It has changed my life.”
Brandon’s list of complications includes pain, insomnia, depression, fatigue, weakness, crippling nerve damage in her right leg---even hair loss.
