    Trial By Error: French Dogs on the Trail; Impact of Long Covid on the US Job Market
    By David Tuller, DrPH Can Dogs Smell Compounds Associated with Host Response in Long Covid?

    Test prudently
    by Amy B. Rosenfeld I do not advocate testing for any person vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 unless they display severe symptoms or live with those who for whom vaccines are not yet approved. I understand that testing and isolation are mechanisms to break virus transmission chains and were used at the beginning of the pandemic to […]

    Trial By Error: Dutch CBT Trial Targets “Dysfunctional Beliefs About Fatigue” in Long Covid Patients
    By David Tuller, DrPH Since the emergence of the phenomenon now called “long Covid” (or Long COVID, depending on news organization), skeptics have been out in full force.
