According to new research published in the journal Frontiers in Medicine, survivors of severe Covid-19 are more likely to die over the following year than those who experienced milder symptoms.
The risk of dying over the course of a year after an infection can be increased by severe covid-19.

Patients under the age of 65 who had a 233% increased chance of dying compared to the uninfected, were the most noteworthy in the study.
The risk of death for people under the age of 65 was greater than the risk for people over the age of 65.
The research was based on an analysis of the electronic health records of 13,638 patients who underwent a test for coronaviruses and recovered from the disease.
The researchers said that 80% of the patients did not die from any of the problems associated with Covid-19, meaning that their deaths may never have been linked to it.
The researchers wrote that the findings suggest that patients are vulnerable to other health issues if they are not protected from serious illness through vaccinations.
Arch Mainous, a professor at the University of Florida and the study's lead author, said the research expanded upon previous work showing that patients with severe Covid-19 who recovered were at significantly greater risk of being hospitalized in the subsequent six months. Mainous said we must be especially vigilant in decreasing severe episodes of Covid-19, now we know that it comes with a risk of dying from an unrecognized complication. Taking your chances and hoping for a good outcome in the hospital doesn't convey the full impact of Covid-19
In breakthrough cases, Covid-19 vaccines cut the odds of severe illness and hospitalization by more than half. Hospitals in parts of the country have been pushed to their limits due to the large number of unvaccinated Covid-19 patients. Despite the availability of vaccines in wealthy countries, leaders are still concerned about the unvaccinated. This research supports a growing body of evidence that shows the persistent and sometimes new symptoms some coronaviruses patients experience for weeks or months after their initial infections. The list of potentially disabling symptoms for long Covid is long and covers the entire body. One in five Covid-19 patients will be diagnosed with a mental illness within three months of their recovery, according to research. Studies suggest that vaccines can reduce the risk of developing long Covid, though the exact mechanism of this is not yet understood.
My patience with the unvaccinated is wearing thin.
There is a 12 month mortality risk for post-acute sequelae among adults.
A study found that people with mental health disorders were twice as likely to die as the general population.
