About half of hospital patients with COVID-19 have serious complications, said scientists who monitored the status of more than 73,000 British people infected with the coronavirus. And age does not matter.
49.7% of those admitted had at least one complication.
“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.

In addition, in severe form, the disease advanced even among young people and citizens without chronic diseases.
The coronavirus affects several organs, in addition to the lungs. The kidneys, heart, and blood vessels also suffer.
Often, there are disturbances in the functioning of the digestive system. SARS-CoV-2 also affects brain function.
In particular, the patients complained of memory impairment and mental decline.
Many of these complications persist for at least several months after recovery.
