In addition to the already known long Covid symptoms, the researchers also found evidence of increased mortality among those who recovered. The former corona patients therefore had an up to 60 percent higher risk of death between one to six months after infection than non-infected people. 1672 of the 73,345 patients (almost 2.3 percent) died between one and six months after the infection. The risk of being dependent on outpatient medical care in the first six months after infection was also increased by 20 percent, according to the study.
