80% of COVID-19 survivor reported ≥1 lingering symptom beyond 4 weeks post-infection, characterizing a syndrome called the long-COVID. Although primarily a respiratory disease, long-COVID has multiple impacts on other bodily systems, including “brain fog”, i.e. cognitive impairment, and neuropsychiatric sequelae. Two biological contributors to long-COVID are elevated pro-inflammatory markers and dysregulated gut microbiota, which are also risk factor causal of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).
