Researchers have conducted the largest observational study to date looking at the presence of neurological and mental health conditions 6 months after COVID-19 infection, using data from electronic health records of over 230,000 COVID-19 patients. Four of the authors were able to discuss the findings and also how these results will help inform planning for both monitoring and follow up of those who have had COVID-19. The findings have been published in The Lancet Psychiatry.
