Scientists have discovered new health effects from COVID-19

(ORDO NEWS) — The latest study looking at the effects of the coronavirus indicated cognitive impairment within months of an acute illness.

However, patients with “longcovid” (post-covid syndrome) experience significant impairment of memory or concentration even after a mild illness.

The coronavirus has not disappeared anywhere and continues to “live” in the neighborhood. Alas, even after having been ill, you can continue to suffer from the consequences of the disease.

The new findings come from an ongoing project called The COVID and Cognition Study, or COVCOG. The study included 200 patients with COVID-19 at the end of 2020/beginning of 2021 and about the same number of people who were not sick (control group).

About two-thirds of people who have had COVID-19 have experienced post-COVID symptoms for more than 12 weeks after recovery.

A new study found that among them, 78% experienced difficulty concentrating, 69% suffered from brain fog, 68% reported forgetfulness and about 40% experienced a semantic disorder (saying or spelling the wrong word).

The study also found that subjects with long-term post-coronavirus symptoms experienced significant disruption in their daily lives.

More than half of the coronavirus cohort was unable to work for extended periods of time, and one-third lost their jobs due to illness.

Why is it important to study the effects of the coronavirus?

The authors of the study note that their results should change the approach in the treatment of patients after coronavirus.

“When people say that they have cognitive difficulties after COVID-19, this is not necessarily the result of anxiety or depression,” the scientists write.

“Something exciting is happening. Memory problems can significantly affect people’s daily lives, including the ability to do their jobs properly.”

However, one large study found a high risk of developing psychological problems in patients who recovered from COVID-19. Such violations occurred a year after the disease.

As with previous long-term COVID studies, the new findings suggest that the severity of a patient’s initial infection can help predict the likelihood of long-term coronavirus symptoms.

Few study participants were so acutely ill that they required hospitalization, however those who reported more severe acute illness were more likely to report persistent cognitive problems.
