Michael Rosen named patron of Long Covid Kids

British poet and former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen has been unveiled as a patron of Long Covid Kids, a charity founded in October 2020 to support young people suffering from long Covid. Rosen, who spent 40 days in a medically-induced coma after contracting Covid-19, commented 'Perhaps the least visible, are the children who’ve been damaged by Covid, who are struggling to find their way back to fitness, overcoming huge difficulties to do with exhaustion, weakness, loss of mobility, damage to organs while their parents and carers do all they can to help. Long Covid Kids is doing all that it can to bang the drum for these youngsters, supporting them and those who support the youngsters'.
