A new study suggests that more than half of COVID-19 survivors end up with long-term symptoms of the coronavirus.

Researchers reviewed 57 studies that included more than 250,000 unvaccinated adults and children who were infected with the coronavirus from December 2019 to March 2021.

Patients were reviewed one month after infection, two to five months after infection, and six or more months after recovery from COVID-19, according to the study.

In all, the study found 50% of patients had long-term symptoms.

That rate remained consistent for six or more months after the original infection.

This isn’t too far off from a study published in JAMA Network Open in early October. As I wrote for the Deseret News, the study found that 45% of early COVID-19 survivors from Wuhan, China, had at least one lingering COVID-19 symptom one year after they were released from the hospital.

Dr. Paddy Ssentongo, an assistant research professor at the Penn State Center for Neural Engineering in University Park, Pennsylvania, said the health care professions need to keep an eye on these symptoms moving forward, according to UPI.

“The burden of poor health in COVID-19 survivors is overwhelming,” he said.
“Among these are the mental health disorders. One’s battle with COVID-19 doesn’t end with recovery from the acute infection,” Ssentongo said.

15 Healthy Meals For Your Heart That Are Really Easy To Cook

If you are sick of cooking the exact same thing over and over again day in, day out, you are not alone. As you are most probably aware, the recipes shared by food bloggers and YouTubers can become a bit overwhelming at times. There are just so many options you cannot figure out what to cook at lunch, or at dinner, and just like the rest of us, you also scroll through the recipes only to cook the same thing you cook on most days anyway!

And even if you are someone who looks up healthy meal recipes, then you’ve got another thing coming. Once you have made it through all the mumbo-jumbo nutrition standards and guidelines, you’ll end up cooking a meal that tastes like grass! And by the way, who even gets to decide what is “healthy” and what is not, anyway?

Thankfully, there is one fix for both the problems: following the American Heart Association recommended guidelines for nutrition on foods, as well as the one recommended by National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. These are simple recommendations such as including more and more vegetables and fruits in your diet and consuming more whole grains on average. As you can notice, nothing confusing or restrictive. Plus, you would want to keep your heart in best health, since it keeps you healthy, ya know.

If you are looking for some other heart-friendly foods, you can consider adding nuts, low-fat dairy, lean meat, fish, and skinless poultry to your diet for the best results. However, this doesn’t mean you cannot have a cheat meal once in a while, but the general idea is to keep the intake of sugar and carbs as low as possible. It is more about including good foods than keeping out the bad ones.

And now that we have figured out specific foods you need to eat to keep your heart healthy, it should make it easier for you to skim through all those food blog posts, right? It is! Why?

Because we have already curated the 15 best heart-friendly recipes for you right here!

Here’s how many COVID-19 survivors end up with ‘long COVID’ symptoms

A new study suggests that more than half of COVID-19 survivors end up with long-term symptoms of the coronavirus.

Researchers reviewed 57 studies that included more than 250,000 unvaccinated adults and children who were infected with the coronavirus from December 2019 to March 2021.

Patients were reviewed one month after infection, two to five months after infection, and six or more months after recovery from COVID-19, according to the study.

Philip Nolan: Reopening of schools ‘not connected’ to rise in Covid-19 cases

The “delicate balance” between Covid-19 and vaccinations is tipping the wrong way this week, but it is not inevitable this will lead to a huge surge of infections.

That is according to Professor Philip Nolan, head of the Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group under the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet).

Posting on social media on Saturday, he said there are many complex reasons why cases are rising, but called on the public to re-commit to public health measures to combat the rise.

“We can’t know what will happen over the coming weeks,” he said.

“This could prove to be a transient, or renewed and sustained growth in infections. We do know from past experience that when cases rise, people become more cautious and limit the spread.”

He said there are actions people can take including being more aware of ventilation in buildings.

“We can support and encourage those not yet fully vaccinated to reconsider that choice,” he said.

“And we can support and encourage each other on the basics: self-isolate if symptomatic, masks, hand and respiratory hygiene , distance and avoid crowding, ventilation.”

However, Prof Nolan said there is no evidence the rise is linked to schools.

For those who intend to travel for the holidays, the CDC recommends avoiding doing so if you are not fully vaccinated.

New holiday COVID-19 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urges eligible people to get vaccinated against the virus and wear masks — in some cases — when gathering.

“Because many generations tend to gather to celebrate holidays, the best way to minimize COVID-19 risk and keep your family and friends safer is to get vaccinated if you’re eligible,” the CDC says in its guidance, issued on Friday.

Children in the United States who are 11 years old and younger are not yet eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Protect those not yet eligible for vaccination such as young children by getting yourself and other eligible people around them vaccinated,” the CDC says.

Getting vaccinated helps protect those have the vaccine against severe illness and death from COVID-19. Unvaccinated adults are over 6 times more likely to test positive for the virus and more than 11 times more likely to die from it compared to those who are fully vaccinated, the CDC found.

When it comes to gathering this holiday season, the agency says it is generally safer to gather outdoors than indoors.

For those who are gathering at indoor public spaces, unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated people should wear well-fitting masks over their nose and mouth, if they’re 2 or older. Fully vaccinated individuals in areas with substantial to high transmission rates should also wear masks in public indoor settings.

People who have a weakened immune system should also wear a mask when gathering. “You might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission if a member of your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated,” the CDC says.

 

“If we don’t get people vaccinated who need to be vaccinated, and we get that conflating with an influenza season, we could have a dark, bad winter,” Fauci told CBS News’ Major Garrett. “…We could also avoid a dark, bad winter if we get people vaccinated to a very high degree over the next several weeks to a month or two.”

Fauci’s fear has been expressed by other health experts as well.

Earlier this week, research presented at an American Academy of Pediatrics conference showed that last year’s decline in flu and common respiratory viruses last winter was due to people wearing masks and social distancing. If that same level of precaution isn’t followed this fall and winter, experts said, there could be a “twindemic” of COVID-19 and the flu.

“Although each of these things is not perfect, taken together, they really are effective in preventing illness,” Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious diseases specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said. “…It just shows you that these viruses, which are really very contagious, will take advantage of us as we open up, gather together, take off our masks.”
