Research led by physicians from the College of King’s College London A full vaccination against corona reduces not only the risk of infection, but also the transformation of the infection into a long-term corona.
And according to the BBC report, it appears that in a minority of people who get corona despite twice, the odds of symptoms appearing for more than four weeks are reduced by 50%, compared to people who have not been vaccinated.
Many people who get coronavirus recover within 4 weeks, but some have symptoms that persist or develop for weeks and months after the initial infection, sometimes known as Long CovidIt can happen after people have even mild symptoms of the coronavirus.
Corona long symptoms
The researchers, whose work has been published in the journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases It is clear that vaccines save lives and prevent serious diseases, but the effect of vaccines on long-term disease has been less certain.
They analyzed the data collected from the application Zoe Covid Study In the UK, which tracks people’s self-reported symptoms, vaccines and tests.
This means that between (December) 2020 and July, the health of more than 1.2 million adults who received one stroke of the coronavirus and 971,504 who received two doses in that time frame were tracked.
Only 0.2% of people who underwent the dual vaccination process said they contracted corona infection after vaccination (2370 cases), and among the 592 people who were fully vaccinated with corona virus who kept providing data for more than a month, 31 (5%) continued to have symptoms of corona for a period prolonged (defined as illness lasting 28 or more days after a positive test)
Dr Claire Steves, lead researcher, said people at increased risk need to prioritize getting booster vaccines.
“In terms of the long coronavirus burden, the good news is that our research has found that getting a dual vaccine significantly reduces the risk of contracting the virus and, if it does, the symptoms are long-lasting,” she added.
