Cognitive deficits in people who have recovered from COVID-19

"People who had recovered from COVID-19, including those no longer reporting symptoms, exhibited significant cognitive deficits versus controls when controlling for age, gender, education level, income, racial-ethnic group, pre-existing medical disorders, tiredness, depression and anxiety. The deficits were of substantial effect size for people who had been hospitalised (N = 192), but also for non-hospitalised cases who had biological confirmation of COVID-19 infection (N = 326). Analysing markers of premorbid intelligence did not support these differences being present prior to infection. Finer grained analysis of performance across sub-tests supported the hypothesis that COVID-19 has a multi-domain impact on human cognition."

(Just sharing; I have no competence to judge the study)
It‘s interesting. A lot of people report having chemo brain for years after chemotherapy, and it‘s been dismissed in many instances as being „in your head“, but it‘s pervasive. I wonder if cognitive changes post covid are similar.
