      Can’t Think, Can’t Remember: More Americans Say They’re in a Cognitive Fog

      Adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s are driving the trend. Researchers point to long Covid as a major cause.

      There are more Americans who say they have serious cognitive problems — with remembering, concentrating or making decisions — than at any time in the last 15 years, data from the Census Bureau shows.

      The increase started with the pandemic: The number of working-age adults reporting “serious difficulty” thinking has climbed by an estimated one million people.
