(Oxford, UK) -- A new study is suggesting that COVID-19 can impair brain function.
A wide-ranging study from Oxford University found that two years after being hospitalized for the virus, recovering patients were at a higher risk of psychosis, dementia and "brain fog."
The researchers combed through over a million patient files, mostly in the U.S., and found COVID patients age 18-to-64 had a 16-percent higher rate of brain fog than patients with other respiratory illnesses.
The study showed even the milder Omicron variant that is currently dominant had similar long-term effects.
