All possible complications after COVID-19 – study

Published on

They tracked all the complications experienced by COVID-19 patients and compiled a list of the most common. The study can be called the first so large-scale – it covered more than 70,000 patients from more than 300 hospitals. 

Moreover, young and generally healthy patients before being infected with coronavirus took part in it.

Scientists admitted that they received a more detailed understanding of COVID-19 and the risks associated with it. The conclusion is disappointing – the virus hits a variety of organs, and makes no exceptions – a strong and healthy body is in its power, or is already affected by chronic diseases.

The main complications after COVID-19 according to the Lancet study:

  • renal – 24%,
  • complex respiratory – 18%,
  • systemic – 16%
  • cardiovascular – 12%,
  • neurological – 4%,
  • gastrointestinal – less than 1%,
  • hepatic – less than 1%.

Short-term multi-organ damage is extremely common in those being treated in hospital for COVID-19 – across all age groups.

The most common diagnoses after COVID-19, according to the Lancet study:

  • acute kidney damage
  • acute respiratory distress syndrome,
  • liver damage
  • anemia,
  • cardiac arrhythmia.

Complication rate:

  • patients 19-49 years old – 39%,
  • 50 years and older – 51%.

“The occurrence of complications was not only associated with a higher risk of mortality during hospitalisation, but also reduced the ability of patients to self-care once discharged,” underlines the study carried out by the team of Thomas Drake of the University of Edinburgh, published by The Lancet.
