A recent study has come up with a shocking revelation where experts believe one in eight 'recovered' COVID patients die within 140 days. The recent study conducted by the University of Leicester and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found that 29.4% of discharged COVID patients developed health issues again and were readmitted, of which 12.3% die after suffering complications. Reportedly, one of the authors of the study, Professor Kamlesh Khunti has said, "People seem to be going home, getting long-term effects, coming back in and dying. We see nearly 30 per cent have been readmitted, and that's a lot of people. The numbers are so large."

According to him, health services need to strategize and be more efficient about their preparations for long COVID. While the study, which observed 47,780 discharged patients, is yet to be peer reviewed, researchers demand more serious steps to be taken for the same. Professor Khunti, also a professor of primary care diabetes and vascular medicine at Leicester University, stresses on the chronic health risks COVID-19 poses to COVID-recovered patients.
