A new argument in favor of vaccination: COVID makes you stupid!

"After controlling for factors such as age, sex, handedness, first language, education level, and other variables, the researchers found that those who had contracted COVID-19 tended to underperform on the intelligence test compared to those who had not contracted the virus. The greatest deficits were observed on tasks requiring reasoning, planning and problem solving, which is in line 'with reports of long-COVID, where ‘brain fog,’ trouble concentrating and difficulty finding the correct words are common,' the researchers said.

"Previous research has also found that a large proportion of COVID-19 survivors are affected by neuropsychiatric and cognitive complications.

“ 'We need to be careful as it looks like the virus could be affecting our cognition. We do not fully understand how, why, or for how long, but we urgently need to find out. In the meantime, don’t take unnecessary risks and do get vaccinated,' Hampshire told PsyPost."

1. Anti vaxxers would never notice the difference.

You can't lose what you never had.

3. I hadn't heard about that before.

You'd think the macho he-men who think they can't get sick would take that into consideration, wouldn't you? *smdh*
