Scientists from CDC found certain symptoms and conditions are increased at 31 to 150 days following testing among people who test positive for COVID-19.
The research is published in JAMA Network Open and was conducted by Alfonso C. Hernandez-Romieu et al.
In the study, the team used electronic health record data for 338,024 persons aged younger than 20 years and 1,790,886 persons aged 20 years or older who were tested for COVID-19.
The new diagnoses of select symptoms and conditions were examined between 31 and 150 days after testing.
The team found 168,701 people aged 20 years or older and 26,665 aged younger than 20 years tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.
Among hospitalized patients, shortness of breath was more common for persons with a positive versus negative test result.
Among non-hospitalized patients aged 20 years or older, shortness of breath was also more common for those with a positive versus negative test result.
Among hospitalized patients aged 20 years or older, those with a positive versus negative result had an increased risk of new fatigue and type 2 diabetes.
These findings suggest the need for doctors and patients to monitor for the development of new symptoms and health conditions beyond the first month after SARS-CoV-2 infection.
This is particularly important for people who required hospitalization for COVID-19.
