Darlene Gildersleeve, 43, of Hopkinton, N.H. at a Manchester, N.H. hospital. Gildersleeve thought she had recovered from COVID-19. Doctors said she just needed rest. And for several days, no one suspected her worsening symptoms were related - until a May 4 video call, when her physician heard her slurred speech and consulted a specialist. "You've had two strokes,'' a neurologist told her at the hospital.

First came a high fever, drenching sweats and muscle aches. Then, almost a month later, a weird numbness that spread down the right side of her body.
