The study, jointly conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Medical Research (NIHR) and the University of Leicester, analyzed 2,030 severe COVID cases who were hospitalized in 83 hospitals across the country.

Women, overweight people and those undergoing resuscitation are more likely to suffer from symptoms of COVID, including fatigue, muscle pain, sleep problems and difficulty in breathing. Most of the patients questioned reported a significant decline in their quality of life compared to before the disease.

Professor Chris Brightling, a researcher and a respiratory specialist at the University of Leicester who participated in the study, said that “500,000 Britons affected by Covid-19 have been hospitalized since the start of the pandemic, leaving the entire public health system shaken. “
