    From blood clots to infected neurons, how COVID threatens the brain

    “Frontera led a study that found that more than 13% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients had developed a new neurological disorder soon after being infected. A follow-up study found that six months later, about half of the patients in that group who survived were still experiencing cognitive problems.”

    Yet most republicans downplay and dismiss Covid as just a mild flu when in reality getting this virus can have disastrous health outcomes. But the right wing in their infinite wisdom keeps whining fake news. Probably if more of them start suffering from Covid induced mental and nervous health issues than most republicans will finally wake up and face the music. However I am not holding my breath on that one.

    Hmm, is this LGBTQ only? In my case it was like having a mild cold. Tested positive and before there was a vax. I think I’ve had it more than once but not sure. So yeah I guess I downplay it. I know that those with comorbidities have a tougher time. Fortunately I live in a red state and life is more or less normal – as it should be.
