Unsurprisingly, COVID appeared to affect a cluster of mental health symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, and limitations on emotional well-being. Perhaps more surprising was the finding that cognitive deficits were not associated with the mental health symptoms of the disease.
From a clinical viewpoint, these results suggest that survivors suffering from the mental health fallout of COVID may or may not be cognitively impaired. However, survivors who experienced severe physical symptoms may require extra cognitive health care.
