Lung function after covid-19: The worst effect of corona infection is on the lungs, but now a new research is claiming that the risk of lung damage in young adults due to corona infection is very low. ht According to the news, the lungs of youth are not affected by the infection of Kovid-19 and the lungs work as before. That is, there is no effect on the ability of the lungs to work. This research paper has recently been presented at the virtual European Respiratory Society International Congress. According to this paper, if there is a corona infection in the young age, then the ability of the lungs to work will not be affected. Dr Ida Mogensen, a researcher at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, said that people who were also suffering from asthma did not have any effect on lung function after corona infection. Although he did have trouble breathing, there was no effect on the ability of the lungs to work.
No effect on the lungs of children and adolescents
Another study also claimed that there was no effect on the ability of the lungs to work in children and adolescents who had corona infection. The way his lungs worked before Corona, they still work. The lungs of teenagers and children are safe even after infection with corona. However, the lungs of children and adolescents who had severe infection of corona have been affected.
Dr Ida Mogensen said, after corona, there was concern among people whether the lungs would be healthy after recovering from corona or if they would be healthy then how many days would they be healthy. This concern was especially among those who were young, because even after infection in the general population, youth recover from it.
doing the same work as before
The study, conducted in Stockholm, included young people whose average age was 22 years and were born between 1994 and 1996. Before Corona, between 2016 and 2019, there were many types of investigations of these people. Between October 2020 and May 2021, he got corona infection. After this their lung function tests were done. Along with this, eosinophils and inflammation were also investigated. Eosinophils are part of the immune system. Antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 were formed in the blood of 178 out of 661 infected people. After this investigation it was also proved that before corona and after recovery from corona infection, the lung function capacity of these people was same as before. Dr Mongshan said, these were very relief results.
