Before she became sick with a coronavirus infection in January, Semhar Fisseha was a healthy, active 39-year-old.
She took walks every day and planned summer vacations with her nine-year-old daughter. Now, even activities that many people take for granted can come at a big cost.
"I woke up with a deep fatigue," she says in an audio diary one October morning.
"I had a four-activity day yesterday — I showered, I bathed my daughter, I went for a walk, and I washed the dishes."
Fisseha also experiences chest pain and a racing heart.
