The infected people were found to be less well than the people who were not infected with the corona virus. Professor Bin Cao of the Sino-Japan Friendship Hospital said, ‘Our study is based on the data provided in relation to the infected people admitted to the hospitals, getting sick after 12 months. Most of the patients made a complete recovery but some of the seriously ill patients continued to have health problems.

The study findings suggest that some patients will take more than a year to recover. During the study, the data of those patients who were discharged from hospitals between January 7 and May 29, 2020, were analyzed.
These patients underwent detailed health check-ups about six and 12 months after their discharge from the hospital. Along with this, many types of questions were also asked to these people and different types of investigation were done. The average age of the patients involved in the study was 57 years.
Researchers said that the symptoms that patients had in the initial days of being infected with the corona virus gradually disappeared. However, at least one symptom was present in some patients.
The study revealed that fatigue, or muscle weakness, was the most common symptom. Even after six months of infection, people had to face such problems. At the same time, after a year, such a symptom was present in one out of five patients.
About a third of the patients complained of breathing difficulties after 12 months. These were patients who became seriously ill and needed ventilators.
The researchers said that after one year, compared to six months, the problem of restlessness and nervousness increased more than before in some patients.
