Treat early. Treat everyone. Treat safely. Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are even used in pregnancy. They shut the disease process down.
Refuse to rely on vaccines, whose efficacy at preventing infections, spread, and late complications is unknown, and whose ability to prevent neurologic complications is unknown.
It is even possible the spike protein coded by the vaccines can cause neurologic complications, since it does get into the brain (see previous post).
Six months after being diagnosed with Covid-19, 1 in 3 patients also had experienced a psychiatric or neurological illness, mostly mood disorders but also strokes or dementia, a large new study shows.
About 1 in 8 of the patients (12.8%) were diagnosed for the first time with such an illness, most commonly anxiety or depression. Compared to control groups of people who had the flu or other non-Covid respiratory infections, first-ever neuropsychiatric diagnoses were almost twice as high.
The study, published Tuesday in The Lancet Psychiatry, used real-world health data on millions of people to gauge the incidence of 13 brain disorders. Anxiety, mood, and substance use disorders were most common, but the researchers also found worrying, if lower, rates of serious neurological complications, especially in patients who had been severely ill with Covid-19. In all Covid-19 patients, 0.6% developed a brain hemorrhage, 2.1% an ischemic stroke, and 0.7% dementia.
