One in eight recovered COVID patients die from illness complications within 5 months: UK study.

The research which found that almost one in eight died from illness complications is still to be peer-reviewed.

The research which found that almost one in eight died from illness complications is still to be peer-reviewed. A recent study titled "Epidemiology of post-COVID syndrome following hospitalization with coronavirus: a retrospective cohort study" by a group of experts found that "a third of people who were discharged from hospitals in England after being treated for COVID-19 were readmitted within five months – and almost one in eight died." Some of the recovered COVID patients developed heart problems, diabetes, and chronic liver and kidney conditions.

A total of 47,780 individuals hospitalized between January 1 till August 31, 2020, with Covid-19 were compared with a group who did not have COVID-19. Of the 47,780, 29.4 percent were readmitted within 140 days of discharge, and 12.3 percent died. The readmission rate was 3.5 times more significant, and the death rate was seven times higher than those in the control group.

Moreover, doctors said that the virus could cause lead to physiological manifestations in patients suffering from the COVID. The impact of COVID-19 will cause possible complications in the kidneys. Cardiac and vascular complications resulting from COVID-19 were also observed in the first six months of treating the new virus since China's original outbreak was first reported in December 2019. Vikramjit Mukherjee, M.D., an expert doctor at Bellevue Hospital Center, said that COVID-19 manifests every week and will change again in the weeks and months to come.

Therefore, the long-term health consequences of COVID-19 remain mostly unclear. This study is aimed to describe the long-term health consequences of patients with COVID-19. The study published in Medrxiv is yet to be peer-reviewed.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
