Over the last several months, our understanding of COVID-19 has evolved drastically. While many people make a full recovery from a coronavirus infection, there are others who suffer lingering symptoms for months on end. During a Q&A with Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci discussed the group of people health experts have dubbed long haulers. He revealed that 20 or 25 percent of people who have cleared the virus — some of who barely experienced initial symptoms — have "an unexplainable symptom complex that seems to be consistent among them without any laboratory data to indicate why they may be feeling that way." If you suspect that you battled COVID-19 earlier in the year, and might fall into the long-hauler category, and have what's called Post-COVID Viral Syndrome. Here are the symptoms per Dr. Fauci. Read on, and to protect your life and the lives of others, and don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID. 1 Excessive Fatigue While fatigue is one of the initial symptoms signaling an infection, the majority of long haulers continue to experience overwhelming exhaustion long after the virus is gone, per Dr. Fauci. 2 Shortness of Breath Shortness of breath is another trademark symptom of COVID-19, per the CDC. However, if the difficulty breathing doesn't subside, it could signify long hauler syndrome. "People who are in good shape, athletes, have trouble climbing a flight of stairs," Fauci explained. 3 Sleep Disturbances Many long haulers have trouble sleeping, explains Fauci. RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study Finds 4 Dysautonomia Fauci explains that a phenomenon called dysautonomia, or autonomic dysfunction, can be one symptom. "Dysautonomia refers to a group of medical conditions caused by problems with the autonomic nervous system (ANS)," reports the Cleveland Clinic. "This part of your nervous system controls involuntary body functions like your heartbeat, breathing and digestion. When the ANS doesn't work as it should, it can cause heart and blood pressure problems, trouble breathing and loss of bladder control.RELATED: 7 Tips You Must Follow to Avoid COVID, Say Doctors 5 Brain Fog Brain fog is "another unfortunate word" to describe a symptom of long term COVID. It "really means they have difficulty concentrating and focusing where you're looking at a computer screen and you just can't focus on what you're doing," he explained. 6 Organ System Dysfunction Fauci added that there is another type of long-term health damage that has been documented in COVID survivors who suffered more severe cases of the virus. "If someone goes in the hospital with COVID, they get difficulties breathing, they get intubated and put on a ventilator. They get pneumonia when they recover, because they have such damage to their lungs or sometimes to their heart or to their kidney," he explained. "It may be months and months, and maybe even longer — because we don't know yet because we've only been doing this for less than a year — where they have organ system dysfunction that is residual, maybe indefinitely." 7 You May Survive COVID, But It Doesn't Mean Your Struggles Are Over Bottom line? Some people simply don't bounce back from the virus. "The idea that you get infected, either get no symptoms or you die, and if you don't die, you're okay — I think that there are going to be a lot of things that we're going to be following that people are going to have trouble even after they recover," he concluded. RELATED: The New COVID Symptom Every Woman Needs to Know 8 How to Avoid "Long COVID" Observe Fauci's fundamentals: Wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with, practice good hand hygiene and, to protect your life and the lives of others, don't miss the full, extended list of Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.

According to a recent viral TikTok video, Costco is now selling frozen chicken nuggets that look and taste just like the super-popular nuggets at Chick-fil-A.The video, which has garnered millions of views, was posted by TikTok user @floridamomof3 and compares a new line of nuggets from the Just Bare brand with Chick-fil-A's version. It features a mother-daughter duo who can't believe their taste buds upon trying the Costco-purchased nuggets dipped in Chick-fil-A's original sauce (now sold at retail).RELATED: Grocery Shortages To Expect in 2021, According to ExpertsAfter warming the frozen nuggets in the oven, the duo conducts an on-camera taste-test and the daughter exclaims, "You wouldn't even know the difference," while her mother adds, "It tastes just like Chick-fil-A."Although ostensibly created as an innocent taste test, the video does seem almost as a staged marketing ploy, with the two regularly repeating the name "Chick-fil-A" while eating the copycat nuggets. In fact, they mention Chick-fil-A a total of nine times during the brief video. They also mention the stores Publix and Costco by name, and say the Just Bare brand name twice.According to The Chickenwire, Chick-fil-A's own publication, the company's nuggets are among their most popular menu item, rated the third most popular menu item in a survey from late 2018. It's not surprising then that any store-bought nugget brand would benefit from the association.And this frozen option at Costco is a delicious yet cheaper way to enjoy fast-food nuggets at home. A bag of the Just Bare Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks packs 4 pounds of chicken and retails for $17.49 via Instacart. That means you are paying around 27 cents per ounce of chicken. On the other hand, an eight-count order of Chick-fil-A nuggets weighs 4 ounces, according to Fat Secret, and costs $3.85, which is just over 48 cents per ounce.Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest grocery news delivered straight to your inbox.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President, has admired our Federalist heritage—but not the fact that every state has handled the coronavirus differently. It's resulted in some areas containing the virus—and others overrun. A new Wallethub study, using data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The COVID Tracking Project and rt.live, has ranked all 50 states, in order from most to least safe during the pandemic. The factors they considered: vaccination rates, COVID-19 positivity, hospitalization, death, and transmission. Read on to see the bottom ten, ending with the absolute least safe—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 10 Kansas On the same day it was reported that four nurses in rural Kansas refused to administer the vaccine, deaths rose, currently standing at 3,579 and 7,930 hospitalizations. That includes this heartbreaker: "A Salina couple's love is being celebrated as they died from COVID-19 while holding hands," reports KAKE. "'They were just full of love and happiness,' Sharolyn Hoffman, the daughter of Bert and Carol Stevenson, said. 'They got married later in life, after previous marriages, and so, I think they finally found their love match,' Hoffman said." 9 Arkansas Earlier this month, the state hit records for hospitalizations, and the surge has included an outbreak in the Legislature. "Rep. Lanny Fite, who serves District 23 in Saline County, said Wednesday that he tested positive but has not had any symptoms," reports KATV. "Fite said he is isolating at home and had already been quarantining since Rep. Milton Nicks tested positive last week. Fite sits next to Nicks in the House chamber. Rep. Keith Slape tested positive for the virus on Monday." 8 Pennsylvania Getting a vaccine in Pennsylvania or nearby New Jersey is proving nearly impossible for some. "David Zalles, 82, spent an hour on Montgomery County's website before he realized all the appointments to get the coronavirus vaccine were already booked," reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Five weeks after the coronavirus vaccine rollout began nationwide, millions are now eligible to get the shots in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. But the states are still receiving far fewer doses than they need, and with no centralized system for administering them, confusion and frustration reign among the vaccine-hungry public." 7 California California has made headlines worldwide for the severity of its COVID outbreak. The surprising thing isn't that it's on this list, but that it's so far down. "Now, with the crisis showing signs of easing, the main reason for the catastrophic surge is coming into focus: a false confidence that the pandemic could be kept in check," reports the Los Angeles Times. "For the public, that complacency showed up in fatigue and frustration over safety restrictions. Officials, for their part, were caught off-guard by how rapidly, and how broadly, the virus spread once the numbers began to climb. By Christmas, so many patients struggling to breathe needed to be hospitalized in California that emergency rooms in large swaths of the state closed to ambulances as doctors stuffed patients in hospital corridors. The holiday surge has so far killed more than 18,100 Californians, more than doubling the state's total death toll from the pandemic in less than three months." 6 Georgia "Some grim perspective as the average number of deaths per day in Georgia from COVID-19 for the last two weeks has exceeded 100 for the first time ever and the number of confirmed cases has now surpassed 700,000, according to state data," reports Fox 5. "As of 3 p.m. Thursday, the Georgia Department of Public Health reports 11,511 confirmed deaths and 1,378 probable deaths since the start of the pandemic. That is an average of 101 confirmed deaths per day for the last 14 days or 1,411 confirmed deaths in the same time period. Just over 14.2% of all confirmed deaths in Georgia have happened since the New Year, according to state data." 5 South Carolina "South Carolina's death toll is climbing to tragic new heights. Data from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control shows the state broke its single week record for deaths the week of January 9, tallying 329 confirmed and suspected deaths," reports WIS News. "The previous record was 325 deaths, counted the week of July 25. Between the weeks ending on Dec. 26 through Jan. 16, DHEC has tallied 1,160. That's the deadliest four week span of the pandemic." 4 Nevada "A surge of Nevada coronavirus cases following December holidays may have passed, but deaths are still spiking, experts told a panel guiding the state's COVID-19 response Thursday," reports News 4. "'It's pretty likely that we're right in the throes of the peak related to mortality,' chief state biostatistician Kyra Morgan told the COVID-19 task force a day after state health officials reported a new record high number of deaths in one day, 71." 3 Mississippi Another state, another Legislative breakout. "At least three members of the Mississippi Legislature recently tested positive for COVID-19, and now there's a debate between House and Senate leaders about suspending the session," reports WAPT. The light at the end of the tunnel seems far away. "At the current rate, it would take almost nine months to vaccinate Mississippians now eligible to receive COVID-19 shots, with the majority receiving their doses at Mississippi State Department of Health drive-thru clinics," reports the Sun Herald. 2 Alabama "Alabama is grappling with surging deaths as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations remain high and intensive care unit capacity is stretched," reports ABC News. "The state reported record numbers of new cases and hospitalizations following the holidays. At one point last week, only 39 ICU beds were available statewide."RELATED: If You Feel This, You May Have Already Had COVID, Says Dr. Fauci 1 Arizona "Over the course of the pandemic, the Yuma area has identified coronavirus cases at a higher rate than any other U.S. region. One out of every six residents has come down with the virus," reports the New York Times of the country's "Salad Bowl." "Each winter, the county's population swells by 100,000 people, to more than 300,000, as field workers descend on the farms and snowbirds from the Midwest pull into R.V. parks. This seasonal ritual brings jobs, local spending and high tax revenue. But this year, the influx has turned deadly."No matter where you live, follow the public health fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
