More than half of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital still experienced symptoms of breathlessness, fatigue, anxiety and depression for two to three months after their initial infection, according to the findings of a small Oxford study.

The research, named C-MORE, studied 58 patients admitted to the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, with moderate to severe symptoms between March and May, according to The Echo.

After MRI scans and a number of fitness tests, the study found that 64% of patients experienced persistent breathlessness and 55% complained of significant fatigue.

Tissue signal abnormalities were seen in the lungs of 60% of the COVID-19 patients, in the kidneys of 29%, in the hearts of 26%, and the livers of 10%.

The study also found that patients were more likely to report symptoms of anxiety and depression, and significant impairment in their quality of life compared to a control group.
