The difficulties of many patients recovering from Corona did not stop there. A new study published in the British Medical Journal claimed that Kovid-19 leaves many health problems behind as it passes. 14% of the patients have to go to hospitals again due to some new disease. Researchers at the National Institute of Health Research, based in London, reviewed the health of 193113 patients who had SARS-Cove-2 virus from January 1 to October 31 last year. The age of these patients ranged between 18 and 65 years. They monitored health complications arising in all participants until at least 21 days after confirmation of infection. Also, by analyzing the ‘National Claims Data’, to find out how many patients had to face the new disease within six months of defeating the virus.
The data obtained in the analysis compared the rate of emergence of health problems and hospitalization in patients who were not complained of Kovid-19. Researchers found that 14 percent of patients with the SARS-Cove-2 virus were born with at least one new health problem, causing them to travel to hospitals. The patients admitted to hospitals due to a new disease have also been found to be five per cent higher than those who won on Kovid-19 compared to healthy people.
Youth is more at risk
According to chief researcher Doctor Elaine Maxwell, the risk of developing a new disease as a side effect of covid-19 infection in young patients has been found to be much higher than in the elderly and the sick. These include many patients who have not had any history of suffering from any health problem before.
Burden on health system
William Schaffner, who joined the research team, said, “A lot of problems have been seen in patients recovering from kovid, which affect different parts of the body.” In 14 per cent of cases, the new disease completely breaks them. Since these patients with long-term care needs are high, the burden on the health system is bound to increase.
