WHO Study Reveals Women Suffer From Long Covid Twice As Much As Men. Sigh, Just Take Women’s Trouble And Make It Double

By  | 

The outspread of Covid affected millions all across the world and a high death toll was reported in each country. In order to curb and make people immune against the coronavirus, vaccination drives were started in full swing everywhere and governments urged citizens to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Despite all efforts by the team of scientists and doctors, the virus has not been completely eradicated yet. Amid all this, a study revealed that women who had long Covid – a condition where the symptoms of the infection persist long after they have already contracted the disease, show more symptoms than men who have contracted Covid. And a new study by the World Health Organisation reveals that women are twice more likely to suffer from long Covid than men.

As per reports, WHO has backed many reports that claim women suffer from long Covid more than men. This is not all. In severe cases where the patient needs to be hospitalised, it is reported that one and three females and one in five males develop long Covid. Talking about the number of people who actually experience the long Covid symptoms, WHO said that 10 – 20 per cent of people are prone to developing either mid or long-term effects of coronavirus.
