Researchers at the University of Oxford conducted the investigation, which drew information from more than 1 million people's health records worldwide.

A couple of months, people remained at increased risk for dementia, epilepsy, psychosis and cognitive deficit two years after contracting covid.

Adults appeared to be at particular risk of lasting brain fog, a common complaint among coronavirus survivors.

The study’s findings were a mix of good and bad news, said Paul Harrison, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Oxford and the senior author of the study.

Because it focused only on the neurological and psychiatric effects of the coronavirus, the study authors and others emphasized that it is not strictly long-covid research.

Almost 1.3 million patients with a diagnosis of covid-19 between Jan. 20, 2020, and April 13, 2022, with an equal number of patients who had other respiratory diseases during the pandemic

The study group, which included 185,000 children and 242,000 older adults, revealed that risks differed according to age, with people 65 and older at greatest risk of lasting neuropsychiatric effects.
