COVID Brain Damage Estimated as 20 Years Accelerated Aging

COVID is now classified as a brain injury with damage estimated to be 20 years accelerated aging (less accurate and slower), based on the latest research on associated cognitive decline.

Patients who participated in the study were “less accurate and slower” in their cognition, and suffered from at least one mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety, or posttraumatic stress disorder, according to researchers.

The brain deficits found in COVID-19 patients were equivalent to 20 years of brain aging and provided proof of what doctors have feared: that this virus can damage the brain and result in ongoing mental health issues.
