The question about whether there will be millions of new #LongCOVID cases each year is a question about US numbers. The analogous worldwide question would say tens of millions but has less supporting data: studies of #LongCOVID prevalence typically focus on specific countries.

COVID deaths should be relatively easy to track, but recent reports claim that some big countries have been undercounting deaths by an order of magnitude, versus ~1.2x in the US. Less severe infections are seriously undercounted in the US but wastewater data is readily available.
