Even Mild COVID-19 Symptoms Can Lead to Persistent Cognitive Symptoms

HONG KONG - Nov. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- Concerns about cognitive problems caused by COVID-19 are growing, with reports of "long-term COVID" symptoms lasting longer and growing evidence that COVID-19 can cause long-lasting cognitive and mental health problems, Patients who recover experience symptoms of "brain fog," cognitive impairment, anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) infections months later. In the UK, about one in seven respondents still experienced cognitive difficulties 12 weeks after testing positive for COVID-19. Even mild cases can lead to persistent cognitive symptoms, with one-third to three-quarters of hospitalized patients with mild COVID-19 reporting cognitive symptoms three to six months later.

So how is COVID damaging the brain?

Because the COVID virus can cause damage directly to the brain through encephalitis, this can have devastating consequences. Some patients infected with the new coronavirus will break through the blood-brain barrier and invade the brain. The virus can break through the blood-brain barrier of the human body, infect the cells in the brain, cause neurodegeneration, and develop into brain neuroinflammation.

How long will symptoms such as cognitive impairment last after being infected with COVID-19?

For different patients, it is difficult to predict how long the condition will last after COVID-19. There is much to learn about post-COVID-19 conditions, but current research suggests that patients may experience symptoms that persist for weeks to months following COVID -19. Studies have also shown that the symptoms patients experience can slowly improve over time.
