CNN: People with Covid-19 may face long-term cardiovascular complications, study says
A recent study published in the journal Nature Medicine has found one of COVID-19’s long-term effects to be increased risk of cardiovascular disease for at least a year after recovery. People who were never infected with COVID-19 were 60% less likely to have future cardiovascular issues compared to people who had been infected before. People who had more severe cases of COVID-19 were found to be at the highest risk, with people who were treated in the ICU being 21 times more likely to develop a pulmonary embolism. These trends were found across all sexes, races, ages, and people with underlying conditions. The study also found dysthymias to be the most common cardiovascular disease after infection.
