Where are you getting these ideas from?6-7% is indeed a fraction: about 1 in 16. You may recall that approx. 2 years ago, the fear over long Covid was even greater. Some estimates of incidence were in the 20%ish range IIRC.
They are far smaller than anything I have read about.
Long COVID is, by all accounts, a continuing medical crisis afflicting no less than one third of us.

Long COVID Affecting More Than One-Third of College Students, Faculty
August 28, 2023
It's been estimated that up to one third of people who survive acute SARS-CoV-2 infection will suffer a post-viral syndrome with lingering neurologic and other symptoms — now known as long COVID or neurological postacute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (Neuro-PASC).
However, new research suggests that may be an underestimate and that far more people may be suffering from long COVID without ever having tested positive for the virus.
