November 10 according to a recent report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that between March and July, nearly 10,000 patients in the country due to Coronavirus is admitted to the hospital, in its healing Within two months of being discharged from the hospital, he was sent back to the same hospital again for treatment. However, due to the limitations of the study, the CDC pointed out that the data may be more than the data listed in the study.
According to the “Washington Post” on the 9th, the above data accounted for 10% of the data of all the subjects hospitalized due to the pandemic. This case has increasingly proved that even people who have technically recovered from pandemic may be long after the fact.
Still struggling with complications afterwards. The study was published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, based on the records of 126,137 patients with pandemic. Approximately 15% died during hospitalization, and 106,543 patients were cured. By August, 9504 cured patients were re-sent to the same medical institution for retreatment within two months after discharge.
Researchers have found that people aged 65 and over, as well as people with chronic diseases (such as diabetes or kidney disease), are more likely to be admitted again. Patients who have been cured of COVID-19 who are cared by a skilled nursing institution or home health assistant after discharge, or who have been hospitalized within three months before the diagnosis are also more likely to be hospitalized again for treatment. Although people of color are most affected by the virus, the report found that whites are more likely to be re-admitted than other races and ethnicities.
Studies have stated that diseases that affect the circulatory system, digestive system, or respiratory system are the most common diagnoses for patients who require readmission. In the future, researchers plan to look at readmission data more closely to better understand the long-term effects of the new coronavirus and identify long-term symptoms that require continued care.
According to the report, this study has some obvious limitations: As the researchers acknowledged, the study did not consider people who had received care in another hospital after the initial treatment, or who had experienced long-term symptoms but had not been hospitalized again. .
