The FFS Show episode 22: Long Covid and Christmas myths

The latest episode of The FFS Show looks at a claim about long Covid, and we delve into some of the misinformation about the festive season.

What exactly is long Covid and how many people are suffering from it in Scotland? In this episode we discuss the exact definition on it and whether we can trust the numbers of cases in Scotland.

In the last episode of 2021, we give you some teasers on what to expect in the coming weeks, and Ali tests whether Sam has learned anything in his time co-hosting the podcast with a special holiday quiz.
