Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said that asthenia and problems associated with the cardiovascular system are the most common complications after COVID-19 in patients.
According to him, this list also includes the risk of developing thrombosis in the presence of a predisposition in a person, as well as disorders of the central nervous system.
He stressed that patients who have already suffered a coronavirus infection should contact medical institutions for further recommendations on adjusting therapy.
“This is especially true for people with chronic diseases and who are registered at the dispensary,” Murashko said on April 1 in an interview with Russian journalist Naila Asker-zade on the Russia 24 TV channel.
Earlier, on March 25, Tatyana Yakovleva, First Deputy Head of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA), said that about 80% of citizens need rehabilitation after coronavirus. According to her, it can last from two months to six months.
At the same time, she emphasized that priority care should be provided to patients with bronchopulmonary complications, as well as those who have neurological, cardiological and gastroenterological disorders.
