Avoiding the Kovid-19 is difficult for those who become seriously ill with the disease, but returning to normal is a struggle, according to new research, which found survivors, even after months of health and May face financial difficulties.
Dr. of the University of Michigan Health System A team of scientists led by Vineet Chopra saw 488 Kovid-19 patients treated and released from hospitals in Michigan. He conducted the survey between 16 March and 1 July, about two months after his release.
One of the survivors reported ongoing health issues in the form of a cough, a new or worsening condition and a persistent loss of taste or smell, the researchers reported in the Journal Annals of Internal Medicine this week.
About half said they were “emotionally affected” by their illness and a small number, 28, sought mental health care after discharge.
Another 36% reported “at least a mild financial impact from their hospitalization.” Of those employed prior to their illness, 40% stated that they either lost their jobs or were too ill to return to work. Just over a quarter of those who returned to work reported fewer hours or revised responsibilities.
Chopra’s team wrote, “For the majority of patients who were alive, ongoing morbidity was normal, including inability to return to normal activities, physical and emotional symptoms, and financial loss”.
“These data confirm that the toll of Kovid-19 spreads well after hospitalization,” the study concluded.
