Certain COVID-19 Infections Linked With Long-Term Lung Sequelae
Findings from a recent study revealed that the majority of patients who survive severe-to-critical COVID-19 infections have significant lung sequelae and residual symptoms for up to 1 year that require routine clinical monitoring. The study evaluated patients’ short-term, intermediate-term, and long-term trajectories of lung-function recovery after severe-to-critical COVID-19 infection and their determinants. Learn more about the study findings.

Previous research indicated that air pollution is now recognized as an important environmental risk factor for developing mental health issues; however, epidemiologic evidence on long-term exposure to low levels of air pollutants with incident depression and anxiety is still minimal.
