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%?
Most of these studies are pre-Omicron and show general correlation to disease severity. Half the people I know started re-engaging the world once they were fully vaccinated and boosted. Most of them got Omicron despite being boosted over the holidays. But everyone had only mild symptoms on account of being triple vaccinated. Hopefully, this won’t become an issue down the line…
