What truth in losing one's medical if contracting COVID? Also I understand that lung function test equipment needs specialised sanitation between tests

Probably should be moved to the medical section.... but I’m interested to see that there is no provision made for people who have been ventilated for COVID - we are seeing some fairly hectic long term lung damage in those who survive ventilation along with other conditions associated with critical illness - i guess these are covered under the catch all that we need to report if there is any change in our health status?
