Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

Different studies come up with different results

Even the ONS study showed it was still a worry, even if under half the cases were Long Covid

Another study from a couple of weeks back

Maybe.

But the ONS study involved 27,000 Covid cases and a 27,000 control group.

Studies without control groups are clearly drawing invalid conclusions.

BBC:

”And like many other reports, the analysis suggests women, 50- to 69-year-olds and people with other long-term health conditions are the most likely to have some of these symptoms 12 weeks after a Covid infection.

Are these the best figures on long Covid?

The ONS study is big, detailed and very carefully put together.

They looked at data from more than 50,000 people, half of whom had tested positive for coronavirus. 

And they were testing people at random, so we can be pretty certain that we're comparing a group of people who had Covid with another group who didn't. That's not true for all analyses.

They say their estimates are closer to the truth than the higher estimates they gave in April, because they have long-term follow-up on a lot of people and they've improved their statistical analysis.”

You could say the same with a study group

Because a person in the study group develops a symptom without Covid, doesn't mean that the person who had Covid develops the same symptom felt tired for the same reason. That again is open to coming up with false conclusions. One might have developed the symptom due to the weather and one because of Covid etc. I think the whole thing about Long Covid is open to wide interpretation and invalid conclusions on both sides

Problem with long covid is that up until that ONS study it had been up to people to report if they felt unwell and we all know just how many people talk about having the flu when it's really a cold!
