A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association looked at people discharged from hospital after treatment for Covid-19 has found that 4 in 5 of them were still reporting symptoms even 2 months later.

• Researchers looked at 143 patients from Italy who had been hospitalized with Covid-19 and survived.

• Assessed patients two months after the onset of their first Covid-19 symptom and had spent two weeks in the hospital recovering.

• At the time of the assessment, none of the patients reported fever or any symptoms of acute Covid-19 but over half reported fatigue and 43% reported shortness of breath. Almost a third of the survivors reported joint pain and 22% had chest pain.

• Only 13% of patients were free of any COVID-19-related symptoms after 2 months, whereas over half of the people reported three or more symptoms.

• Covid-19 is often written off by naysayers as a disease which only severely affects older people, but people profiled in this study were between 19-84 years old, with an average age of 57.

• Many physicians have warned that Covid-19 could cause long-term disability in some people who survive the disease and have called for more research into both the acute and chronic effects of the virus.
