The covid-19 grave is associated with an increased risk of dying during the twelve months after having overcome the disease , especially among those under 65 and for reasons that have nothing to do directly with the usual complications of SARS-CoV-2 .
A study led by the University of Florida (United States) and published by Frontiers in Medicine suggests that patients who survive the worst forms of COVID-19 experience a general deterioration in health that makes them vulnerable to other ailments.

Research indicates that those who recover from severe COVID-19 have more than twice the risk of dying in the year following recovery, compared to those who experience the disease mildly, moderately or who do not become infected.
The team tracked the electronic medical records of 13,638 patients who underwent PCR, of whom 178 had severe COVID-19, 246 mild or moderate and the rest were negative in the test.
The results indicated that seriously ill covid-19 patients under the age of 65 are 233% more likely to die over the following year, compared to those who are not infected.
Those who had mild or moderate COVID-19 “did not have a significantly higher risk of mortality” compared to those who were not infected, highlighting the importance of reducing the chances of severe disease through vaccination.
Regarding the causes of death , 20% of seriously ill patients who overcame COVID subsequently died from typical complications of SARS-Cov-2, such as bleeding disorders or respiratory failure.

Eighty percent of deaths occurred for a wide variety of reasons not typically associated with coronavirus, suggesting that patients had experienced a general deterioration in their health that made them vulnerable to various ailments, according to the study.
The same team had already published similar research, the results of which indicated that recovering severely ill covid-19 patients had “a significantly higher risk of being hospitalized in the following six months , ” explained Arch Mainous, from the University of Florida and lead author of the study.
Mainous stressed that it is now known that there is “a substantial risk of dying from what would probably be considered an unrecognized complication of covid-19, we have to be even more vigilant to reduce serious episodes “, for which he recommended the use of preventive measures such as vaccination
