The New York Times: Many Post-Covid Patients Are Experiencing New Medical Problems, Study Finds
Featuring: Helen Chu, Allergy & Infectious Diseases
“The report, which will be posted publicly on Tuesday morning on the organization’s website, analyzed records of people diagnosed with Covid-19 between February and December 2020, tracking them until February 2021. It found that 454,477 people consulted health providers for symptoms 30 days or more after their infection. FAIR Health said the analysis was evaluated by an independent academic reviewer but was not formally peer-reviewed. ‘The strength of this study is really its size and its ability to look across the range of disease severity in a diversity of age groups,’ said Dr. Helen Chu, an associate professor of medicine and infectious diseases at the University of Washington School of Medicine, who was not involved in the report. ‘This is a hard study to do with that much data.’”

  • International travelers fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine (n=10,092) had an 87% lower likelihood of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 via PCR upon arrival to Qatar between February to April 2021 compared to a matched (1:1) cohort of unvaccinated travelers with no prior infection. Over 80% of a subset of PCR-positive specimens sequenced (n=72) were identified as variants of concern. More.
