Researchers have found that people who have had Covid-19 in the past six months were more likely to have depression, dementia, psychosis and stroke.

The researchers found that a third of those who had previously had a Covid infection either became suffering from psychological or neurological conditions, or they had relapses of cases that were already existing.

The injured, who were transferred to hospitals or intensive care departments, were more at risk.

It is likely that this is caused by the consequences of stress, as well as the direct effect of the virus on the brain.
