Coronavirus can significantly impact brain function, causing mental decline equivalent to the brain aging 10 years, according to an alarming new study.
A study of more than 84,000 people in the UK found that the virus left even those deemed recovered with chronic cognitive consequences that it compared to dropping 8.5 IQ points.
People who had recovered, including those no longer reporting symptoms, exhibited significant cognitive deficits, the study published on MedRxiv said.

Great! That should mean my 9 year-old can vote. MAGA!
Only that much? Did Biden catch it 7 times already?
I’m thinking Mao, Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot have been just slightly more evil.
....so let’s invoke the 25th. Amendment.
Oh, yeah, I can see what THIS is all about.
Just an attempt to smear Trump.
China virus also can cause incontinence and explosive diarrhea, hair loss, impotence and acne.
"WARNING: May cause hair loss, uncontrollable greasy discharge, impotence and acne..."
You almost had to admire them sticking the "uncontrollable greasy discharge" right in the middle hoping people wouldn't notice...
Why is this surprising to anyone? COVID is a blood pathogen as well it causes microclots in a good percentage of people it infects. When not if these clots enter the brain they cause cellular death at the location of the clot. The cumulative effect of losing thlaw brain cells is lower cognitive abilities. No conspiracy theories needed it’s just an effect of the clotting. This is also why doctor’s are seeing a increase in heart attacks in COVID patients of the clots get into the cardiac arteries and form a mass than a cardiac event will happen again no conspiracy needed. COVID does nasty things to a percentage of the population it’s not just some flu to people who have a yet to be identified genetic or immune system susceptibility to this pathogen. Some people don’t get all that sick others it’s life altering long term damages.
OH NOEEEE... were ALL gonna be like Sleepy Joe Biden!!
I think tuning in to CNN or BBC News has a similar effect!
“Lockdown rot” (I like it!) with the underlying condition of advanced TDS, while not lethal, will destroy all rationality, common sense, compassion and tolerance which is already compromised in Democrats/Leftists/Communists.
Even if true, Trump has PLENTY of IQ points to spare.
At least 50% of scientific studies are false. The number may be closer to 80%. This is a huge problem in science in general, but especially in “soft sciences” like psychology or medicine. It’s safe to say that this is a bogus study. Unless they release the entire study for review.
No one tunes in to CNN,
it’s force fed at airports only.
Id like to see figures over the next few years on how remote learning has gone for K-8.
I wonder if it will be recoverable.
“A study of more than 84,000 people in the UK found that the virus left even those deemed recovered with chronic cognitive consequences that it compared to dropping 8.5 IQ points.”
People’s IQ drops as they get older? At what age does that start?
This only occurs if the patient is very elderly with pre-existing conditions and gets a septic infection causing encephalitis. AND its extremely rare.
MORE FEAR MONGERING.
Could be true. Trump seems to have dropped to an IQ around 180. Were doomed!
My '66 MGB had that problem. Left spots pretty much anywhere I parked it.
