A new study, published in The Lancet, looks at complications in people hospitalised with severe COVID-19 between 17 January and 4 August 2020. The comprehensive study is the first to systematically assess a range of in-hospital complications, and their associations with age, sex and ethnicity, and their outcomes for the patients.
Journalists dialled in to the briefing to hear the study investigators present their results and answer any questions.
