One in three patients who have had the coronavirus will have a mental or nervous disorder after half a year. American and British scientists came to this conclusion.
Large-scale studies involving 236,000 people showed that patients developed about 14 types of neurological or mental problems within six months of coronavirus detection. Among them, 17% of patients had anxiety, and 14% had affective disorders. 13% of these patients had never had similar problems before, and this was their first diagnosis.
Doctors said that patients infected with the coronavirus were more likely to have brain dysfunction than those who had the flu or other respiratory illnesses.
