As many as 1 in 3 COVID-19 survivors experience a mental health or neurological disorder within six months of the coronavirus infection, according to a major large-scale study reported in The Lancet Psychiatry.  About 34% of those study had been diagnosed with a neurological or mental health disorder following their bout with COVID.  For nearly 13% of these patients, it was the first time they had received such a diagnosis.  Unfortunately, the symptoms have not gone away for many and may be permanent (AARP Bulletin May 21, P6).
