Attention and Memory Deficits in People Who Experienced Mild Covid

After severe Covid-19 infection, some people can continue to suffer from cognitive symptoms such as difficulties in concentrating, as well as forgetfulness and fatigue – features of the ‘long Covid’ syndrome.  Researchers from Oxford’s Department of Experimental Psychology and Nuffield's Department of Clinical Neurosciences have shown that people who have had Covid but don’t complain of long Covid symptoms in daily life nevertheless can show degraded attention and memory for up to 6-9 months. 

Dr. Sijia Zhao of the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, explains that Covid-19 survivors showed degraded attention and memory and that people can experience some chronic cognitive consequences for months.
