Recovered COVID-19 Patients May Still Die Within 140 Days, Study Finds

A new study finds that 19.3% of recovered COVID-19 patients developed health conditions and died after being admitted to the hospital.

When a person is infected with the coronavirus, they most likely experience a series of physical and mental issues. In attempts to relieve all the health risks as well as medical complications resulting from COVID-19, scientists and researchers are still working on a solution.

Recently, it was found that the disease can leave long-term effects on recovered patients with permanent lung damage, for example. Worse, according to a more recent study, one out of every eight recovered COVID-19 patients die within 140 days.

Behind the study is the Office for National Statistics and the University of Leicester, which found that 29.4 percent of discharged COVID-19 patients developed health issues and were admitted to the hospital again. Then, 12.3 percent of these die after health complications.

Professor Kamlesh Khunti, an author of the new study, reportedly said:

“People seem to be going home, getting long-term effects, coming back in and dying. We see nearly 30 percent have readmitted, and that’s a lot of people. the numbers are so large.”

He added that health services had better strategize and prepare more efficiently for a long fight against COVID-19.

The professor stresses the long-term health risks recovered COVID-19 patients face as a result of the disease. The study stated that in the long term, survivors can develop heart problems, kidney, liver conditions, and diabetes. In addition, those under 70 years old developed kidney, heart, liver, and lung problems while new diabetes cases appear weeks or months after their recovery from COVID-19.

According to the professor, it’s not clear whether this is because the disease destroyed the patient’s beta cells that produced insulin, which results in Type 1 diabetes, or if it causes insulin resistance and results in Type 2.
