A new study out of the UK indicates that 75% of Covid patients are still suffering symptoms, one year after contracting the virus.
In total, 2320 participants discharged from hospital between March 7, 2020, and April 18, 2021, were assessed five months after discharge. Of those, 807 participants were still being tracked at 12 months. Overall, just 29 per cent were fully recovered – with women 32 per cent less likely to have made a full recovery, while those who were obese were half as likely to have reached this point.
And those whose hospital stay involved mechanical ventilation were 58 per cent less likely to have fully recovered, the research found.
