Bloomberg: Most people hospitalized with Covid-19 who emerged with lingering fatigue from the infection showed little improvement a year later, according to a study seeking to assess the effect of long Covid.
About seven in 10 Covid long haulers continued to face symptoms like fatigue, muscle pain, lack of sleep and breathing difficulties 12 months after hospital discharge, a study led by the U.K.’s National Institute of Health Research found. There was no or very little improvement compared with seven months earlier.
The study looked at 2,320 adults across the U.K. who had been hospitalized with the disease. All participants were tested five months after being released from the hospital, and about a third returned for the one-year assessment so far.
