GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - A new study from the University of Florida indicates people who recovered from severe COVID-19 cases are twice as likely to die within a year of catching the virus compared to those who haven’t gotten ill.
The study states that people who got a severe case of the disease were more likely to need rehospitalization due to COVID-19 complications.
The research also showed that people younger than 65 had a higher risk of dying a year later than those older than 65 after a severe bout with COVID-19.
