Sounds like correlation through age and lessened ability to communicate problems when hospitalized. Scanned the OP’s statement and the linked article. Didn’t see anything that indicated correction for one or both of these things.

People who have neurodegenerative conditions tend to have poorer personal hygiene People who have neurodegenerative conditions tend to be older with more comorbidities This is a no brainer

The headline seems very misleading to me. It’s saying that neurodegenerative diseases are a risk factor for severe covid, but they might not have anything to do with it at all. I think it’s more likely that both neurodegenerative diseases AND severe covid have the same underlying risk factor which is poor health. Usually that’s due to old age but it doesn’t have to be. If a person is in bad shape they’re going to be susceptible to lots of health issues.

Is Directed Energy Weapons of Mass Destruction a Disorder though. And who puts peoples names on what how long ago for why. Was it decided in 1938 or 45 or maybe all the way back around 1893. They need to stop attacking people with DEWMD.

Sounds like Darwin in action. You’ve gotta die of something. If not this, then something else.
