The Toll of COVID

Also, using death as the only marker for the health toll of this pandemic is misleading. Those who survive may experience significant morbidity, chronic symptoms collectively referred to as long COVID. A recent study, for example, found that having severe COVID correlates with brain shrinkage and cognitive deficits equivalent to normal aging between ages 50 and 70 – 20 years of brain aging. This was correlation only, but it is extremely likely that most or all of the correlation was caused by the infection. As a neurologist I am seeing many patients referred for cognitive, fatigue, and other neurological symptoms following COVID. People generally recover to some extent, but not always or completely.

Imagine if we actually held the authorities accountable for the disastrous way they handled this entire situation, instead of blaming a couple crackpots on the internet like they want you to do.

Is COVID-19 “the forever plague”?

A recent article claims that Omicron reinfections confer “no immunity” such that it’s possible to be reinfected with Omicron variants every two to three weeks and calls COVID-19 the “forever plague.” Although it makes a reasonable point that “natural” postinfection immunity doesn’t last long because of variants, the article is undermines its reasonable criticisms of COVID policy with maximal fear mongering.
