    What do we know about prolonged covid, the condition that affects one in ten people after being infected with the covid-19 virus? Well, there is still a lot for medical professionals, academicians and society to know and understand about it.

    Long Covid – when symptoms of Covid-19 such as breathlessness, exhaustion and headache persist even after a person has recovered from the infection – have been described by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “devastating” the lives of millions of people worldwide .

    Supporting previous research, which suggested that women were more likely than men to suffer from covid for a long time, a new study has shown that about two-thirds of cases occur in women.

    report published in Journal of the American Medical Association, It was found that women account for 63 percent of those living with prolonged covid. The findings were drawn by researchers after examining 1.2 million people from 22 countries who reported having symptomatic COVID in 2020 and 2021.

    But why are women more likely to suffer from covid for a longer period of time? Well, there is no definite answer to that question yet. In my writing of today’s news, independent pointed to previous research (Posted in American Journal of Managed Care) which suggests that different immune responses may explain the gender differences.

    independent It also highlighted the fact that previous studies have found that women, young people, and individuals from black, mixed-race or other ethnic groups are at higher risk of getting covid for a longer period of time.

    talking to GuardianWHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stressed that there is a need for immediate action to tackle the prolonged COVID. he said:

    “While the pandemic has changed dramatically due to the introduction of many life-saving devices, and there is light at the end of the tunnel, the impact of the prolonged COVID for all countries is very serious and requires immediate and sustained action equal to its scale. “

    He has not only called for research and care to be “intensified” for those affected, but also warned of a “very serious” crisis posing for countries around the world.

    With 1.2 million people finding that their day-to-day activities are adversely affected by prolonged COVID symptoms (according to the Office for National Statistics), it is important that research continues.
