All over the world, the rates of death and hospitalization from COVID keep dropping.

More and more people are surviving COVID and staying out of the hospital, but more and more people are also living with long-term symptoms of COVID.

Compare those numbers to the recent rates of death and hospitalization from COVID in the U.S.—three percent and .3 percent, respectively.

After all, more COVID survivors means more people at risk of long-term symptoms.

“Despite an increased level of protection against long COVID from vaccination, it may be that the total number of people with long COVID in the U.S.

That is, every day more people catch long COVID than recover from long COVID.

Repeated infections come with elevated risk of a whole host of problems that, not coincidentally, match the symptoms of long COVID, a team of scientists at Washington University School of Medicine and the U.S.

Crunching the numbers from back in July, Nash’s team concluded that 7 percent of all American adults—that’s more than 18 million people—had long COVID at the time.

One thing that surprised Nash and his teammates is that the risk of long COVID isn’t uniform across the population.

Young people and women are more likely to catch long COVID, the CUNY team found.

Why there’s a sex gap in long COVID risk is just one unanswered question that scientists and health officials could be trying to answer.

“Exclusively focusing on these outcomes could arguably make the long COVID situation worse,” Nash explained, “since there is a substantial amount of long COVID among people that have only had mild or less severe SARS-CoV-2 infections.”.

The same tools that can prevent hospitalization and death from COVID can also reduce the likelihood of long-term symptoms—all by lowering the chance of any COVID, short or long.
