Secondary Symptoms

The disease is bad enough. What about its secondary symptoms?

In medicine, secondary symptoms are symptoms that might arise from the disease, but are not directly of the disease. We’ll be talking about the secondary symptoms of Covid-19. Not about what Covid-19 does to one’s respiratory tract; rather, what other things Covid-19 is doing to all of us–what it is doing to our politics, our economy, our scientific communities, and our social fabric.
