A retrospective cohort study examined electronic health records data from 81 million patients, including 273,618 patients who survived COVID-19. This study estimated the risk of having long-COVID features in the 6 months after diagnosis. In total, more than 1 in 3 patients had one or more features of long-COVID between 3 and 6 months after a diagnosis of COVID-19. Long-COVID feature risk was higher among patients who had more severe COVID-19 illness and slightly higher among women and young adults. White and non-White patients were equally affected.
