A team of scientists led by Dr. Vineet Chopra of the University of Michigan Health System studied 488 Covid-19 patients who were treated and released in a Michigan hospital. They investigated them about two months after their release from March 16 to July 1.
Nearly half of the people said they were “emotionally affected” by the disease, and a small number of 28-year-olds sought mental health care after being discharged from the hospital.
Another 36% said that “at least the hospitalization had a slight impact on finances”. Among those who were employed before the illness, 40% said they were either unemployed or too sick to return to work. More than a quarter of those who have just returned to work reported reducing their working hours or modifying their responsibilities.
Chopra’s research team wrote: “For most surviving patients, persistent morbidity is common, including inability to return to normal activities, physical and emotional symptoms, and economic loss.”
The study concluded: “These data confirm that Covid-1
The study has limitations. The survey only covered 488 of the 1,600 patients initially tracked. Researchers report that one-third of the 1,600 patients died.
CDC data: Black and Latino hospitalization rates are 4 times higher than whites
The data shows that between March 1 and November 7, the hospitalization rate for the Hispanic or Latino population was 444.6 per 100,000. The hospitalization rate for Alaska Natives or Native Americans was 430.9 per 100,000 people. In the black population, this proportion is 412.2% of 100,000.
According to data updated on Friday, the hospitalization rates for Asian or Pacific Islanders and whites are 132.5 and 106.2 per 100,000, respectively.
The CDC report said: “When examining the overall age-adjusted ratio by race and ethnicity, the ratio of Hispanics or Latinos is about 4.2 times that of non-Hispanic whites.” “Non-Hispanic American Indians or The death rates of native Alaska and non-Hispanic blacks are about 4.1 times and 3.9 times that of non-Hispanic whites, respectively.”
According to CDC data, since the end of September, the total weekly hospitalization rate in the United States has increased, mainly due to the increase in the hospitalization rate among adults over 50.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that from October 24 to November 7, the weekly hospitalization rate for children increased for two consecutive weeks.
