    “ Coronavirus could age the brain by 10 years or cause IQ to fall

    Survivors of coronavirus could be at risk of lasting mental damage as a study found that in the worst cases it can trigger cognitive decline equivalent to the brain ageing ten years or an 8.5-point drop in IQ.

    The “brain fog” reported by many sufferers weeks and months after recovering from the disease could be a symptom of more serious cognitive deficits, scientists say.

    Research involving 84,285 people who had recovered from confirmed or suspected Covid-19 found that damage to the brain happened in varying levels depending on the severity of the disease. Further work is needed to identify how long this lasts.“

    Great. We can skip 10 years of education and get them into "useful work" at Starbucks tomorrow.

    Starbucks et al tends to use immigrants in London. Having visited similar establishments in smaller towns in the SE I understand why, so they would be too stupid to work in Starbucks.

    From what I'm hearing from scientists, covid could be a bit like the flu virus.

    A vacine for covid may only be 50% effective (like the flu vacine).
    After having had covid, immunity may only last a few months.
    Covid may be with us for a very long time. It could keep flaring up year after year (like the flu).
    There is some anecdotal evidence that getting covid a 2nd time could be worse than the 1st.

    Maybe the best hope isn't a vacine but better ways of treating it.

    Anyway, we're all doomed.
