Covid-19 with long-term symptoms, known as long-term Covid-19, can occur in people infected with the coronavirus (called “breakthrough” infections), especially people over the age of 60, according to a new UK study.
Researchers at the University of Oxford, who published the results on medRxiv, analyzed data on 10,024 vaccinated and 9479 unvaccinated, according to Reuters. Scientists confirmed that those who were fully vaccinated had a lower risk of death and serious complications, intubation, hospitalization, fatal thrombosis, pulmonary failure, psychosis, etc.
On the other hand, according to the researchers, especially for those over 60, “vaccination probably does not protect against various symptoms of long-term Covid-19, such as cardiac arrhythmias, joint pain, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, sleep disturbances, disorders moods, etc. “.
The researchers concluded that “those who contracted the coronavirus, despite being vaccinated, were vaccinated many months ago, and therefore, for those over 60, it is advisable to take a third, additional dose of the drug from COVID19.”
