Covid-19 really is the gift that keeps on giving. Oxford University researchers are claiming this morning, that people diagnosed with covid-19 in the previous six months, were more likely to develop dementia, depression, stroke and even psychosis.
The Oxford scientists say their research shows that the more severely ill with Covid the patient had been, the more likely they were to receive a subsequent mental health or brain disorder diagnosis.
But isn’t it true that the vast majority of people who become severely ill with covid are over 75 years-old? Aren’t pensioners more likely to develop dementia? Aren’t seniors more susceptible to strokes?
Dr Sara Imarisio, head of research at Alzheimer’s Research UK, told the BBC:
“Previous studies have highlighted that people with dementia are at higher risk of developing severe Covid-19. This new study investigates whether this relationship may also hold in the other direction. The study doesn’t focus on the cause of this relationship and it is important that researchers get to the bottom of what underlies these findings.”
She’s right. All studies to date have suggested that dementia sufferers are more prone to severe illness from covid. In fairness, dementia sufferers are more prone to many illnesses.
When you look at all the data gathered in the last year, those who had severe covid and ended up in ICU or passed away, were most likely to have been over 75 years old and with at least two co-morbidities.
The Oxford study released today, is more propaganda, designed to scare people into having a vaccine. Oxford would be better off trying to determine why its own vaccine is causing blood clots in recipients, some of whom have died.
It bears repeating time and again that most people won’t get covid-19. Most of those who do, will have mild symptoms. For some, these symptoms will be so mild that they will not notice them. It has a 99.7 per cent survival rate. Covid is a mild respiratory infection.
Yet so-called experts have to date linked covid-19 infection to the following:
Diabetes, stillbirths, heart disease, kidney failure, eye damage, brain damage, lung damage, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, tinnitus, hiccups, stuttering, sore toe, memory loss and hearing voices.
Add dementia, depression and stroke to the list this morning, if you believe Oxford’s scientists that is. Covid-19 really is the gift that keeps on giving.
