Covid-19 patients face a high risk of ongoing health problems, hospital readmission and even death in the first few months after their discharge, a new study has found.
The authors from the University of Michigan and VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System noted that the first one and a half weeks could be particularly dangerous.
The report was published in JAMA Network. The hospital stay of the patients who participated in the study began in the period 1 March to 1 June. All of them were discharged before 1 July.
