Only 29% Hospitalised Covid Patients Fully Well After A Year, Says UK Study

Not even one in four people have completely recovered from Covid a full year after being hospitalised with the disease, a UK study indicated Sunday, warning that long Covid could become a common condition. It also found that obese people were half as likely to fully recover, while those who needed mechanical ventilation were 58 percent less likely.ย 

The study looked at the health of people who were discharged from 39 British hospitals with Covid between March 2020 and April 2021, then assessed the recovery of 807 of them five months and one year later. Just 26% reported a full recovery after five months, and that number rose only slightly to 28.9% after a year, according to the study published in the Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal. (AFP)
