Coronavirus in Italy and in the world: news today 8 July. LIVE

To carry out the study, the research team analyzed, from 25 March 2020 to 24 January 2021, the data collected by the smartwatches and fitness trackers of 875 individuals (of which 234 positive for coronavirus) who reported symptoms of a respiratory disease and are been swabed for Covid-19. They were thus able to demonstrate that people who contracted Covid-19 took “much longer to return to pre-Covid physiological parameters, compared to those who reported symptoms but tested negative for the coronavirus”. Specifically, the participants of both groups started from the early stages of the infection to sleep longer and suffer from a rapid heartbeat, but the subjects infected with Covid-19 showed more pronounced and lasting changes, especially as regards heart rate at rest. “Our data suggests that the severity of early symptoms and an initial broader resting heart rate response to Covid-19 may be a predictor of how long it will take individuals to recover physiologically from this virus,” explained Jennifer Radin. study coordinator. “In the future, with larger sample sizes and more comprehensive results reported by participants, it will be possible to better understand why some people recover faster or differently than others.”
