Also be careful not to multiply the most severe symptoms of long covid by the percentage of people who suffered any degree of long-term symptoms post-covid.

Pancreatic tissue can have ACE-2 receptors, I think, so there's a possible plausible mechanism for damage.

Seems like a potential explanation for some of the after effects of Covid. Not sure that it'd apply to ME/CFS as they suggest though.
