Risk Factors Linked to Post-COVID Illness Discovered

JAMA Network

About The Study: This systematic review and meta-analysis of 41 studies including 860,000 patients found that certain demographic characteristics (e.g., age and sex), comorbidities, and severe COVID-19 were associated with an increased risk of post−COVID-19 condition (PCC; also known as long COVID), whereas vaccination had a protective role against developing PCC sequelae. These findings may enable a better understanding of who may develop PCC and provide additional evidence for the benefits of vaccination.
