As many as one in three people infected with Covid-19 have longer term mental health or neurological symptoms, researchers reported Tuesday. They found 34% of Covid-19 survivors received a diagnosis for a neurological or psychological condition within six months of their infection, according to the study published Tuesday in the journal Lancet Psychiatry. And while the neurological effects are more severe in hospitalized patients, they are still common in those who were only treated in an outpatient setting, the researchers note.

  1. A major study published Tuesday suggests as many as one in three people infected with Covid-19 are left with longer term mental health or neurological symptoms

  2. Doesn’t necessarily make it because of covid itself, many people probably develop anxiety out of fear of having it

  3. More than likely these people had anxiety disorders before Covid and just never had the time to address it

  4. A family friend had covid for 3 months and was in a coma for a month. He’s learning how to walk and do a lot of stuff all over again.
    I had it, but it affects everyone differently. For me it was 3 days with a fairly high fever, then no energy for a week. That was it. I feel so bad for those that got the worst of it, and especially those that didn’t make it.
    Hopefully this goes the way of Polio soon and the vaccines do their job.

  5. Of course because covid has been blown so out of proportion by the media that people are anxious, big fucking surprise.

  6. I wonder if it’s Covid related or just trauma from lockdowns and all the other traumatic experiences we’ve dealt with over the past 1.5 years. I’d bet money that this statistic can be extrapolated to the entire population, not just Covid patients

  7. Ummm brain disease a bit harsh and how do we know they didn’t suffer from those things before COVID-19?

  8. Coming from someone who is actually bipolar, classifying a mood disorder as brain disease couldn’t be more false. Ask any doctor

  9. Just saying they say anxiety rose in Covid 19 patients. Couldn’t you say the stress caused by the lock downs and job less could of lead to that

  10. Well, I had anxiety well before I had covid, so I guess here comes SSRI-resistant-super-anxiety 😆

  11. Or maybe the year of a pandemic with no government assistance or leadership caused the anxiety. It’s increased in everyone, not just covid survivors.
