In this interview, they discuss the kinds of patients treated who already were obtaining rehabilitation services and then subsequently contracted the coronavirus and another group that initially was not involved in rehabilitation, but later required it as a consequence of becoming infected; after-effects either caused or associated with the onset of coronavirus symptoms; conditions among patients that persist well beyond when they initially began to experience symptoms upon becoming infected; population subgroups that may be more prone to continue to experience long-term symptoms; patients that  experience a loss of physical function in the form of deconditioning; kinds of respiratory support for patients hospitalized with COVID-19; and research topics for improving patient care.
