New Delhi. If you have stopped wearing a mask and are ignoring all the rules to avoid Kovid, then you should be careful. Because a research has claimed that people can fall ill for a long time due to Kovid. A new research published in the medical journal The Lancet on Friday said that one in eight people infected with Kovid-19 develop shortness of breath and general fatigue after 90 to 150 days. According to research, so far is one of the reliable estimates of long Kovid spread. People who have been ill for a long time with Kovid have not been properly researched yet. There is also not much information on what effect it will have on people who are sick for a long time.
According to Hindustan Times, new research from the Netherlands is at least giving a concrete answer to the question of what effect it will have on people who have been ill for a long time from Kovid. The participants in the research were asked to report the symptoms they were experiencing regularly from the beginning of the infection. Research states that the infection can cause long-term chest pain, difficulty breathing, muscle pain, loss of taste and smell, tingling, lump in the throat, feeling hot and cold, heavy extremities and general fatigue. Might be possible.
There was an urgent need for data to inform the scale and scope of long-term symptoms experienced by some patients after Covid, said study lead author Judith Rosmellen of the University of Groningen in a press release. Among participants who collected data for post-Covid symptoms, the researchers found that 21.4 percent (1,782 out of 381) of the COVID-19 positive participants experienced many of the symptoms listed above.
Several factors are also being investigated, including potential long-term effects on the brain and cardiovascular system, under the effects of Long Kovid. The authors of the research said that there is also a need to look at mental health effects in the future.
