According to a study, former corona patients are more prone to other diseases. Three months after an acute infection, there were more frequent medical diagnoses of physical and psychological symptoms.

According to an analysis of health insurance data in Germany, three months after the acute infection, they received medical diagnoses of physical and psychological symptoms more often than other people, the Dresden University Hospital announced on Wednesday. Not only adults, but also children and adolescents are potentially affected by post-Covid.

Children and adolescents sick more often after corona infection

In children and adolescents, for example, malaise and rapid exhaustion, cough, pain in the throat and chest area, as well as anxiety disorders and depression were most frequently found. In adults, the diagnoses mainly concerned taste disorders, fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. In addition to the Dresden University Medicine, several statutory health insurance companies and the Robert Koch Institute were involved in the study.

First “controlled cohort study on post-Covid”

“This is internationally one of the first, large controlled cohort studies on post-Covid. The extensive database of our partners and innovative methodological procedures allow for the first time reliable statements on the long-term consequences of Covid-19 in children and adolescents,” explained Professor Jochen Schmitt from the Dresden University Hospital . In order to understand the connections between Covid-19 and the diseases, further research is necessary.

Health restrictions after corona infection

In medicine, post-Covid means symptoms of illness and health restrictions that persist or are newly added for at least three months after a corona infection. So far, however, it is not clear what exactly distinguishes Post-Covid and how many people are affected, it said. The analysis included data from more than 150,000 people who were found to have Covid 19 disease in the first half of 2020, including almost 12,000 children and adolescents.
