COVID 19 survivors face increased risk of death: study
A person who defeated the COVID 19 virus is at risk of death even after 6 months, a study of Washington University School of Medicine revealed.
The research, published in the journal Nature on Thursday suggested that despite being a respiratory virus, COVID can affect all the organs of the human body.
The study involved nearly 87000 thousand COVID patients.
“Our study demonstrates that up to six months after the diagnosis, the risk of death following COVID-19 is not trivial and increases with disease severity,” said research senior author Ziyad Al-Aly, an assistant professor of medicine at the University.
These side effects include breathing problems, irregular heart rates, mental health issues, and hair fall, they said.
