Film director & journalist Michael Nigro, a long hauler talks about COVID-19 deniers and how do we move them to the real world.
Michael Nigro deconstructs long haulers
Michael Nigro did not disappoint. He contracted COVID-19 in March. He thought he was over it. He was not. He is now a COVID-19 long hauler.
Michael Nigro is an award-winning filmmaker, six-time Emmy-nominated writer-director, and multimedia journalist based in Brooklyn, New York.
His penchant for breaking news and social justice movements has put him at the forefront of some of the most crucial stories of our times including, Occupy Wall Street, Standing Rock, the 2016 presidential election, Charlottesville, covering the immigration crisis in multiple locations in Mexico, the Yellow Vest Movement in France, the on-going Protests in Hong Kong, to name a few.
His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, Vice, The Intercept, NPR, Time, Rolling Stone, and Newsweek. He is a frequent contributor for Truthdig and a former frontline correspondent for BuzzFeed News.
Unfortunately, being a COVID-19 long hauler has substantially diminished the work he does. One of his missions now is to put his story out there with the expectation that it will change many who do not take COVID-19 seriously enough.
