:00-:20 :52-1:23 delirium, confusion and agitation may be common in patients hospitalized with severe coronavirus infections, according to a study published in the journal lancet psychiatry.

But researchers say long-term psychiatric problems after battling covid-19 may not occur in the majority of patients, researchers looked at 72 different studies on two historical coronaviruses -- middle east respiratory syndrome -- or mers -- and severe acute respiratory syndrome -- or sars -- as well as current studies on covid-19 -- they found about a third of patients infected with sars or mers experienced post-traumatic stress disorder within about three years -- about 15-percent of such patients were diagnosed with depression within about two years -- and 15-percent were diagnosed with anxiety at the one-year point.

While there's no evidence common mental health illnesses will persist in patients -- researchers say doctors should watch out for signs of these disorders in the weeks and months following recovery from severe covid-19 infection.

The research team cautioned that many of the studies they reviewed were of "low or medium quality" -- and more data is needed on psychiatric symptoms associated with covid-19.
