(ORDO NEWS) — People who have been ill with coronavirus may face a variety of consequences of a dangerous disease in the future.
Most of all, the risk of developing cardiovascular complications increases. This risk is present during the first month after the coronavirus has been defeated.
In some cases, people may experience complications even after a year. A similar statement was made by experts at Washington University, located in St. Louis.
The article says that a thorough analysis of information regarding the health of 153,760 people who had previously encountered coronavirus was carried out.
At the same time, not all participants in the study were vaccinated, because it was carried out from the spring of 2020 until the beginning of 2021.
At that time, in the United States, vaccination was just beginning to be carried out, and only a few managed to get vaccinated.
The control group included almost 11 million people who were not infected with the coronavirus. Dr. Ziyad Al-Ali from the University of Washington said that SARS-CoV-2 can increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, especially if it was present before infection.
Particular attention was paid to those people who previously had no problems with the heart. Experts emphasized the fact that in such cases there was also an increased risk of problems with the heart and blood vessels.
Coronavirus increases risk by 50-70% when compared to baseline. The most common complications are seizures, blood clots, coronary disease, stroke, heart rhythm disturbances, and so on.
