At least one-third or 34% of Covid-19 survivors were diagnosed with a neurological or psychiatric condition within six months after being infected, showed a study published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal on Wednesday. Almost 13% of these patients had never received a neurological or psychiatric diagnosis before.

The most common diagnoses after coronavirus were anxiety disorders, mood disorders, substance misuse disorders and insomnia.
