25% of Corona patients suffer from long-term symptoms.. a study reveals


A new American study revealed that nearly a quarter of patients who tested positive for the Corona virus continued to suffer from long-term symptoms at least one month after their initial diagnosis of corona infection, according to the “hill” website.


The researchers studied more than 1.9 million patients without serious comorbidities such as cancer, kidney disease and hepatitis, and this makes it one of the largest comprehensive surveillance studies of the Corona virus to date, and this data comes from multiple health care systems across the United States of America.

 

According to a report by FAIR Health, the study found that 23.2% of coronavirus patients had a single case after infection, with most of it occurring in patients who had severe symptoms, although some asymptomatic patients also had common complications.


The report found that of the patients admitted to hospital, half ended up with some form of post-coronavirus.


Among those with post-coronavirus symptoms, the most common symptoms were pain, difficulty breathing, hyperlipoproteinemia (a form of high body fat), malaise, fatigue, and high blood pressure.


More post-coronavirus symptoms were also evaluated in women than in men during the study.


It is worth noting that carditis was relatively prominent as an after-effects of corona, especially among males, but it is also present in females.


The age group most affected by myocarditis was between 19 and 34 years old, and this follows reports from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) documenting cases of myocarditis in young adults under the age of 30 after vaccination.


The study also noted that mental health symptoms frequently occur among post-coronavirus complications, and anxiety was the main symptom among recovering patients, followed by depression.


The researchers said that "the results presented in this report are important to all individuals who have long-term symptoms of corona, to clinicians and policy makers, and that these findings should be a starting point for further research in this area."
