Neurological symptoms persist in majority of COVID-19 long-haulers

New research suggests that many people suffer neurological symptoms long after contracting COVID-19. 

According to Neuroscience News, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine are conducting a longitudinal study to track neurological symptoms in COVID-19 “long-haulers.” The first round of results, published June 15 in Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology, found that the majority of participants still had some neurological symptoms after six months. 

56 persons with neurological symptoms following a COVID-19 infection were recruited to the study.  Baseline measurements were taken a few months after their initial infection and repeated three and six months later. When participants returned for their six-month follow-up, only one-third reported complete resolution of symptoms. The other two-thirds reported persistent neurological symptoms, though most had diminished in severity. The most prevalent symptoms at six-months were memory impairment and decreased concentration.
