I didn't realize that was an issue.

So… I can’t be interpreting this right. If this also applies to humans wouldn’t this mean that every vaccinated person who got Covid afterwards and claims to have gotten long Covid is lying or having some kind of breakthrough infection? I mean it’s a mice study so it wouldn’t have to apply to humans the same way anyways but aren’t they describing the prevention of the long Covid process here?

This is really promising. The neurological effects of my covid infection back in 2020 have not had any improvement, whereas the cardiopulmonary effects have improved somewhat in the last few months for me (finally). It’s terrifying, to be completely honest, and the other recent study that revealed that they have found the virus in people’s brains on autopsies didn’t quell my anxiety. I’ve really worried about the long term neurological implications of allowing covid to run rampant because the infections are mostly “mild” now. Hopefully this is a solution to that.
