Emphasizing that there are not many hospitalizations in young people and that they overcome the disease like flu, Hanoğlu said, “We conducted a thesis study in one of our graduate programs about this situation, which is widely discussed in the world. In the study, we observed 50 young people under the age of 30 in the 1-3 months after the disease. We saw that these young people have deterioration in both memory and executive and attention-related functions, which is not low at all. There may be people who are not affected at all, but a group that is affected by it also emerges late. Various studies say that this and similar problems are caused by “brain fog” and are especially seen in those who have had a heavy Covid-19 effect. It is not yet clear whether the effect of Covid-19 on the brain is permanent We do not have clear information on the subject. We also plan to follow up the patients we examined in the thesis study.”he said.
