ASSESSMENT OF QUALITY OF LIFE AND EFFECTS IN RECOVERED AND VACCINATED COVID-19 POPULATION: A CROSS-SECTIONAL OBSERVATIONAL STUDY
Keywords:COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019), Disease, Vaccine, Effects
Objective: The main objective of this study was to assess the QOL (quality of life) and effects on the recovered and vaccinated COVID-19study population.
Methods: A cross-sectional observational study was carried out for six months among residential areas and selected individuals regardless of country. Demographic details and responses were collected through phone calls and also using google form questionnaires.
Results: A total of 264 subjects were enrolled in this study. In the selected study of recovered patients, it was found that females (mean score 21.9) experience high effects compared to males (mean score 39.6) since a low mean score means higher post-effects. In the evaluation of post-vaccination effects of the selected study population, it was found that males and females experience different levels of post-vaccination effects in which females(mean score 19.5) experience high effects comparatively to males (mean score 21.9). The result of the quality of life for both recovered patients and the vaccinated population infers that the younger age group was found to experience a high quality of life than the older age group who were>65 y of age.
Conclusion: The study concludes that the elderly population of>65 y of age and females based on gender were likely to suffer from post-COVID-19 effects and post-vaccination effects. It can also be concluded that the younger age group has a healthy standard of living compared to the age group>65 y.
