The report also found higher rates of damage to the lungs, brain and kidneys
A new study shows one third of people admitted to hospital in Britain with Covid had abnormalities in multiple organs five months on.
The report also found higher rates of damage to the lungs, brain and kidneys compared to patients who weren’t infected with the virus.
Researchers also found a link between how badly the organs were affected and the severity of the infection.
Dr Betty Raman carried out the research, she says ‘Long Covid’ is causing genuine problems:
“Long-Covid is a serious concern. It affects the quality of life of individuals. People may not be able to return to work. I think this is an area we still need to continue researching, particularly because we still don’t have answers to these questions.”
