Saw a story about a study in “Nature” magazine saying that persons who got Covid frequently have a loss of 2% of their brain mass, memory issues and so forth.

1) I wonder if there is any evidence that such was the case with other viruses?  If not, what is it about Covid that causes this association?

2) I wonder if this is progressive, that is, if one studied the same population in another year, might it be 3%?

Irwin-

COVID is hardly alone here. The main cause of encephailitis is viral, then other nonbacterial organisms like Lyme ds etc.  Plenty of viruses cause encephalitis and/or meningitis resulting in long standing or chronic symptoms as well as acute disease. Herpes is the classic neurotropic virus living in brain and nerves      [ eg HS-V 1,2 [Simplex] and 3 [Varicella-Zoster] and [10 if you're Eddie Murphy] which appear as skin eruptions too. Measles is another you may know of also with a rash, and of course there is Rabies, which requires animal contact,  Polio outside US, and HIV [AIDS] which requires secretion contact.  But increasing in US are West Nile, Equine, Influenza, which are seasonal, and others named after location outbreaks [StLouis, Tuscan, California, Japan, Venezuela] The most recent bad one in the news is Zika which causes microcephaly at birth  Or is it DLT-V [Deranged like T....], which is widespread now, but common in FLA, TXS?
