Post-Covid conditions may continue even after one year, says IEDCR study

A number of Covid-19 patients suffer from post-Covid conditions even after one year of being infected, a research conducted  by the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) revealed this information. 

The study of the IEDCR stated that after one year, around 45 percent Covid patients continue suffering from post-Covid conditions. Around 78 percent patients still suffer from the conditions after three months of being infected while 70 percent after six months, and 68 percent after nine months.

The findings of the study was published on the website of the IEDCR on Wednesday.

The IEDCR, in its research, said that in case of Covid patients with high blood pressure and diabetes, the risk of suffering from the post-Covid conditions is two to three times higher than other patients.

As a result, the researchers recommend such patients to take medications regularly prescribed by registered doctors.
