Survivors of Severe COVID-19 May Have an Increased Risk of Dying Over The Next 12 Months, Study Suggests

Well, this is not good news. There is a recent study that shows that the survivors of Severe Covid have a high risk of dying in the next 12 months. This is some morose news, but it is important to know.

The study says that the people who did not have severe symptoms and those who were not affected by the novel Coronavirus are safer as not to die in the next 12 months or the next year, to put it simply.

The people who had experienced severe symptoms and then luckily recovered from the coronavirus are the ones that are at the double the risk of dying in the following year. This sure does not sound like good news to us.

Researchers from the University of Florida stated, “The risk of 12-month mortality among adults under 65 who are hospitalized with COVID-19 is increased by 233% over those who are COVID-19 negative.”

“Since we now know that there is a substantial risk of dying from what would likely be considered to be an unrecognized complication of Covid-19, we need to be even more vigilant in decreasing severe episodes of COVID-19,” said Professor Arch Mainous. He is from the very famous University of Florida. He is also the lead author in the report that we are talking about.

They have stated that the people who did experience mild symptoms do not have to face that high a risk of dying, but that does not mean that they are out of the woods. They also need to be careful with the matter at hand. The best way is to prevent having the coronavirus in the first place. That’s all there is to it.
