Researchers have found that people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within 6 months are more likely to suffer from depression, dementia, psychosis and stroke.

One-third of people who have been infected with the new coronavirus will develop a mental or neurological disease, or cause a recurrence of mental or neurological disease.

Those who are hospitalized due to the new crown or need intensive care treatment are at higher risk.

This may be due to the dual result of stress and the direct impact of the virus on the brain.
