Months after fighting coronavirus, some now face heart, lung or neurological problems

Thomas Lane has been preparing for the COVID-19 pandemic and its long-term consequences for decades. “I’ve ironically been doing mouse coronavirus research for 20 years,” said Lane, a professor of neurobiology and behavior at UC Irvine. … “It was a great way for studying neurological disease.” The mother of Lane’s daughter’s best friend got COVID-19 and now suffers from “brain fog.” Ongoing neurological problems may be the most common long-term problem suffered by those who contract the disease. “She recovered, but she said ‘I’m just in a fog half the time,’” Lane said. “It’s a real situation.”
