There are rising reports of profound cognitive impairment on par with clinical dementia as a result of Long Covid.
By researchers’ best estimates, more than 1 in 8 people with Covid-19 will have some array of the 200 odd symptoms reported in this disease for months to years. Long Covid is quickly emerging as the next public health challenge.
What are these land mines left behind by the SARS-CoV-2 virus? Are you at risk for them to explode even if you never get very sick from Covid? A study released earlier this month suggests that people suffering from long COVID end up with reservoirs of active SARS-CoV-2 virus — documented in our lungs, brain, and GI tract — which produce ongoing levels of viral spike protein in the blood. A year after becoming infected, patients’ levels can sometimes remain as high as were found during early infection.
