Personal trainer, 23, reveals ordeal of long COVID

A personal trainer has opened up about the ordeal of long COVID.
It is increasingly coming to light that not everyone who overcomes the coronavirus returns to a clean bill of health, with some facing complications after testing negative for the infection.
Dan Scoble, 23, from Oxford, developed severe chest pain and cold-like symptoms in early March.
Over the past eight months, Scoble has been to hospital around 10 times with severe pain.
He even endured a spontaneous lung puncture in September.
Too “wiped out” to work, Scoble – who is taking part in the clinical trial COVERSCAN – has hired a carer to ensure he is eating three meals a day.
While no doctor can accurately gauge when Scoble may feel like himself again, the personal trainer is determined to stay positive.
