The study noted that a quarter of them were still suffering from COVID-19 symptoms eight months after they were discharged

The long COVID-19 pandemic is common among hospitalized children, with a quarter of them still experiencing at least one symptom eight months after discharge, according to new research.

The analysis of 518 ex-patients of a Moscow hospital, with an average age of 10.4 years, also found that almost one in 10 had multiple symptoms some 256 days after they left the hospital.

Fatigue was the most frequent symptom, followed by sleep disorders and sensory problems, according to the research paper, published in the European Respiratory Journal.

Experts have also noted that relatively few children are hospitalized due to COVID-19, making it difficult to generalize Long COVID-19 prevalence among children.

However, the study complements the growing body of evidence that Long Covid strikes all age groups – and is widespread in society, they explained.

The study included researchers from Liverpool University and Imperial College London and assessed outpatients from Bashlyaeva Children’s Municipal Clinical Hospital in Moscow, Russia.

The study was conducted by scientists from the University of Liverpool and Imperial College London and evaluated outpatients at Bashlyaeva Children’s Municipal Clinical Hospital in Moscow, Russia.

Although symptoms which were present at discharge diminished over time, even eight months after hospital discharge many children experienced persistent symptoms, with fatigue, sensory changes and sleep problems being the most common

the study concluded.

The research paper follows a study from Imperial College London last month that revealed that over two million individuals in the UK are affected by Long COVID-19 – noting that over one-third of those who have contracted the virus still suffering from symptoms.

Women are more at risk than men, as are health and home care workers and hospitalized persons due to COVID-19, the study pointed out.

It further added that smokers and vapers are more vulnerable, while the risk increases by 3 per cent with every decade of age and with growing obesity, according to the research, part of Imperial College London’s React programme.

Persistent Covid-19 symptoms were lower in people of Asian ethnicity.
