The group of scientists who work in the universities of the UK and the U.S. has found evidence of a tie between the coronavirus infection and malfunctions of the brain as The Lancet reported.

Over 80,000 people were tested in cooperation with BBC. The partakers passed nine types of tests using for estimation of different aspects of human conscience, spanning planning/reasoning, working memory, attention, and emotion processing abilities. As a result, the scientists spotted cognitive deteriorations that cannot be explained by the difference of respondents in age, education, or other demographic and social and economic factors.

The deteriorations were mostly expressed among people who were put on artificial lung ventilation due to the Covid-19. Hospitalized people but not put on artificial lung ventilation faced fewer cases of deterioration. People who were ill but stayed at home – have the rate closer to hospitalized people but not put on the artificial lung ventilation faced.
