Psychiatric News (3/11) reported, “Older patients who survive severe COVID-19 have a much higher risk of cognitive decline compared with their peers who do not get COVID-19,” researchers posited after analyzing “data from 1,438 COVID-19 survivors older than 60 years who were discharged from three COVID-19–designated hospitals in Wuhan, China, from February 10 to April 10, 2020, including 260 who had severe illness and 1,178 who had nonsevere illness.” Serving as controls were “438 uninfected spouses of infected patients.” The findings were published online March 8 in JAMA Neurology.
