No apologies necessary, thanks for the input.

I take metformin regularly anyway (though not for diabetes or auto-immune purposes), which is why the study struck me. I was wondering if the anti-inflammatory effects might also be contributing to the findings.
If you think for one second that I am comparing the USA to China you have bumped your hard.

Interesting. There's some work being done on metformin's effect on metabolic pathways in mitochondrial function. I've had a pet hunch for a long time that long covid is in some way a metabolic disregulation issue, and so this is kind of directionally in line with that.

Dear "healthcare professionals" and anti-vaxxer do-your-own-researchers, just know that I support your rights as Murkins to avoid all further vaccines. Please proceed.

Vaccination Dramatically Lowers Long Covid Risk
Several new studies reveal that getting multiple COVID vaccine doses provides strong protection against lingering symptoms
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/vaccination-dramatically-lowers-long-covid-risk/

"One meta-analysis of 24 studies published in October, for example, found that people who’d had three doses of the COVID vaccine were 68.7 percent less likely to develop long COVID compared with those who were unvaccinated.

A study published in November in the BMJ found that a single COVID vaccine dose reduced the risk of long COVID by 21 percent, two doses reduced it by 59 percent and three or more doses reduced it by 73 percent. Vaccine effectiveness clearly climbed with each successive dose."

It’s worth noting that multiple infections do not have the same protective effect. According to a recent study, each new COVID-19 infection increases the chance of developing long COVID. And each new infection increases the chance of serious, long-term illness including kidney disease, diabetes, and mental health issues."
