Observational Retrospective Bombshell: Elderly Infected with COVID-19 at High Risk for Developing Alzheimer’s Disease

TriaSiteNews reporting on a study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease

  • "The study authors report a striking, and disturbing reality: those individuals 65-year-old and up that were afflicted with COVID-19 have nearly double the risk (0.35% to 0.68%)) for developing the neurodegenerative disease within a year of the infection."
  • "...study involving a total of 6,245,282 adults who were 65-years old and up with no previous Alzheimer’s diagnosis and no visits documented in the electronic health record."
  • For seniors >85 HR = 1.82 [95% CI, 1.69 to 1.97]

Might not be cause==> effect. (3 possibilities as of Sept 17, 2022)

  1. Just being in the hospital (perhaps ICU) might increase risk of seniors getting Alzheimers
    Study does not appear to mention if the people were admitted to a hospital
  2. Perhaps COVID infection caused seniors to be more sensitive to Alzheimer's symptoms
  3. Perhaps those not getting COVID did not get checkups as much, so were less likely to get noticed with Alzheimer/s symptoms
