Long COVID: Majority of Patients Suffer From 2 Main Symptoms

According to a new study from Cambridge University, nearly two-thirds of those with long COVID-19 effects have difficulty with focus and memory.

In a study of 181 patients with long COVID, 78 percent said they had trouble concentrating, 69 percent said they had brain fog (thinking that is sluggish or “fuzzy”),

68 percent said they were forgetful, and 60 percent said they had trouble choosing the proper word in speaking.

The majority of the 181 patients had been infected for at least six months prior to the start of the study.

Despite the fact that the symptoms were self-reported, the assertions were corroborated by significantly lower scores on cognitive tests.

According to the research, which was published in two articles in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience,

more than half of the study’s participants were unable to work for long periods of time,

and one-third stated their disease caused them to lose their employment
