Just skimmed a NYTimes article by Pam Belluck titled “Small Number of Covid Patients Develop Severe Psychotic Symptoms;” I’m no human biologist, but I find Covid-19 replete with nasty surprises…but: psychoses? And in people in their 30s, 40s and 50s. Wow, that’s unexpected (to me).
However. For context, Belluck notes: “Sporadic cases of post-infectious psychosis and mania have occurred with other viruses, including the 1918 flu and the coronaviruses SARS and MERS.” So, should I have known this?
People: wear a mask and stay away from other people. Six feet of social distancing is only sufficient if it’s for say, five-to-seven minutes or less—and less is best.
