US CDC: Risk Of Lungs Blood Clot Double In Covid-19 Survivors


According to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the United States, the survivors of the novel corona virus have been twice the risk of developing a blood clot in the lungs or a respiratory condition.

The study said that, the adults aged between the 18 years to 64 years are having an increased risk of the developing pulmonary embolism, which is a clot in an artery of the lung and several other respiratory conditions such as the chronic cough and shortness of breath.

US CDC said that, one in five corona virus survivors in the particular age range and one in the four survivors over the age of 65 years have also experienced at least one incident condition that might be attributing to the previous infection. Although, more research has been needed for better understanding who has been more likely to experience the long corona virus.

This new study is based on the analysis of the patient records of those, who are having the corona virus infection between March 2020 and November 2021 and they had been following for 30 to 365 days after the covid-19 infection till the onset of any of the health conditions or during the end of the period.

The data had then been compared with the others in a control group for determining the likelihood of all these conditions. The study also suggested that, the corona virus prevention strategies and routine assessment for post corona virus conditions among the persons who have survived are very critical for decreasing the incidence.
