Nearly 19 million Americans have been infected with COVID-19 since the pandemic began — a shocking number, made more disturbing by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's July announcement that a third of COVID-19 patients continue to display symptoms for months after they test negative.

Diana Berrent has experienced symptoms ranging from headaches to stomach issues to glaucoma — even nine months after her March infection. Now, her 12-year-old son has developed long-hauler symptoms as well.

She's the founder of the Survivor Corps research and support group for long-haulers and joins host Robin Young to discuss what she and researchers are finding out from the Survivor Corps members.
