These were compared with four million people who were negatively tested and according to age and gender corresponded to the positive tested as a control group.

They explained this with the rising vaccine rate and better treatment methods. Their results underlined the importance of corona vaccination, it says in the study. In addition, care must be respected for risk patients on thrombosis phrophylaxis. Whether this is still necessary months after recovery, must still be explored.
