Jul 28 - Vaccinated? COVID linked to drop in intelligence, new research finds

People who have recovered from COVID-19 are more likely to score lower on intelligence tests, new research has found.

Scientists tested 81,337 people between January and December last year as part of the Great British Intelligence Test, including almost 13,000 who had been infected with the virus.

Those who had been on ventilators saw the biggest deficit - equivalent to a seven-point drop.


After controlling for factors including age, s*x, first language and education level, researchers found those who had contracted COVID saw the greatest underperformance on tasks requiring reasoning, planning and problem-solving compared to those who had not had the virus.

The study said: "These results accord with reports of long-COVID, where 'brain fog', trouble concentrating and difficulty finding the correct words are common."

The observed deficit in performance was "not insubstantial", with the drop seen in people placed on a ventilator larger than in those who had previously suffered a stroke.

One possibility was the observed cognitive deficits related to ongoing symptoms of the virus, such as a high temperature or respiratory problems, with 4.8% of participants who were ill reporting residual symptoms.

However, the scientists behind the study urged caution in drawing conclusions without brain imaging data but said the results should act as a "clarion call" for further research into the issue.

The report continued: "Speculatively, we believe there are likely to be multiple contributing factors.

"For example, previous studies in hospitalised patients with respiratory disease not only demonstrate objective and subjective cognitive deficits but suggest these remain for some at 5-year follow-up."



Only 275 participants completed the intelligence test both before and after contracting COVID. This limits the ability to draw firm conclusions about cause and effect.

"The large and socioeconomically diverse nature of the cohort enabled us to include many potentially confounding variables in our analysis, which goes some way to mitigating the possibility that observed differences were present prior to illness," the study said.

"Premorbid estimates also indicate that those who were ill were likely to have had somewhat higher as opposed to lower cognitive ability pre-illness."


However, it concluded that a follow up of the cohort should "further confirm the cognitive impact of COVID-19 infection".

The study - Cognitive Deficits In People Who Have Recovered From COVID-19 - involved researchers from Imperial College London, Kings College and the Universities of Cambridge, Southampton and Chicago, and was published in The Lancet.

Previous research from UCL found patients with long COVID reported more than 200 symptoms affecting 10 organ systems.

The most common symptoms identified were visual hallucinations, itchy skin, menstrual cycle changes, s*xual dysfunction, bladder control issues, diarrhoea, heart palpitations and tinnitus.

They were already fu*king idiots. They somehow think that random twitter account and random facebook posts are the source of information to go to. This guy is who they follow.

How many of those were hospitalized?

And how long after those few recoveries after WEEKS if not MONTHS in the hospital was the 2nd test given?

The propaganda is getting stronger they are getting real desperate now! Hold the line. The unvaccinated are ruining their plan and judging by their fast increasing desperation that plan is on a strict deadline. Do. Not. Comply.

I imagine it would have something to do with literal brain damage caused by decreased oxygen being carried to the brain.

sh*t gave me all types of headaches


It did something bad

I'm back to 100% but it definitely messes with your head

I'm not talking your mind I'm saying your brain

Look it up it causes neuron damage




Patients with COVID-19 are experiencing an array of effects on the brain, ranging in severity from confusion to loss of smell and taste to life-threatening strokes. Younger patients in their 30s and 40s are suffering possibly life-changing neurological issues due to strokes. Although researchers don’t have answers yet as to why the brain may be harmed, they have several theories.

Severe Infection
The first possible way is that the virus may have the capacity to enter the brain and cause a severe and sudden infection. Cases reported in China and Japan found the virus’s genetic material in spinal fluid, and a case in Florida found viral particles in brain cells. This might occur due to the virus entering the bloodstream or nerve endings. The loss of smell that occurs in some patients with COVID-19 could indicate that the virus entered through the olfactory bulb, which is located right above the nose and communicates information about smell to the brain.

Can't quite put my finger on it yet but the goal is to clearly put as many shots into bodies as possible without any question and I'm just not with the fu*k sh*t. Sorry if this disappoints you.

And it can't possibly be to stop the spread of a virus that ravaged the world for over a year?

That's a possibility also but still can't confirm. Their reactions speak volumes though and the increasing desperation is telling me to stay as far away from those shots as possible.

What if the firef*ghters are dousing them with a flammable substance at the same time?

Them injections ain’t water.




And y’all are gettin at people who didn’t even have those injections that don’t prevent infections as an option.

I trust firef*ghters though. I don't trust corporate media/government at all. These people destroy for breakfast daily and they DGAF about us peasants and never have. I'm sorry if you thought differently.

You can't have a drop in something you've never had to begin with.
