Instead, post-Covid hospitalization, family history of sudden death, and certain lifestyle behaviors were identified as the likely underlying causes. The study collected data from apparently healthy individuals aged 18-45 who suddenly died of unexplained causes. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol use, recreational drug use, and vigorous-intensity activity were positively associated with sudden death. The study also highlighted that two vaccine doses lowered the odds of sudden death, while a single dose did not. Additionally, the study acknowledged that Covid-19 infection increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.Successful trial run sets tempo for Bengalurus first kambala todayBengaluru witnessed a spectacle at Palace Grounds with the citys first-ever kambala event.

The study highlighted that family history of sudden death, hospitalization for Covid-19, recent binge drinking, and vigorous-intensity physical activity were risk factors for such deaths. Addressing these factors could potentially modify the risk. The study was conducted in 47 tertiary care hospitals and involved apparently healthy individuals aged 18-45 years without known co-morbidities. The investigation was prompted by anecdotal reports of sudden deaths among young adults, raising concerns about the possible connection to Covid-19 infection or vaccination.
