Abstract

[The poverty of opportunity in the American Health Care System was exposed at its worst during the pandemic. This study examines the experiences of Americans who sought health care during the Covid-19 pandemic, and those who find themselves still sick from the effects of the virus in cases of Long Covid, also called Long Haul Covid. In light of the experiences of these individuals, it will be noted that while the pandemic very nearly broke the American Health Care System, it is not completely broken. Greater questions arise. Is health care a right for the people, even the most economically disadvantaged? Is health care a governmental responsibility? What happens post-pandemic, particularly to those who are still suffering from physical effects of the Covid virus but also for health care in general and the concomitant questions of legitimacy?]
