A study from the University of Oxford in the UK indicates that diagnoses of dementia, epilepsy and “mental fog” are more common two years after contracting the virus than other respiratory infections.

However, other conditions, such as anxiety and depression, did not become more frequent in people with coronavirus between 2020 and 2021, according to the research.

More work is needed to understand how and why Covid can lead to other conditions that affect the brain and well-being.

In general, experts say, the virus has disrupted routine life, as well as made people sick.
