close up portrait of human eye

In August 2021 we shared a study of 672 children showing that toddlers born during pandemic have lower IQ. “Children born during the coronavirus pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor and overall cognitive performance compared with children born before, a US study suggests.”

This week, more of the same has been published:

  • The study also found similar dips in the same span in regards to developing children’s ability to communicate, both verbally and though subtle facial cues 

Despite this, government continue this assulat on children, and in some cases, everyone:
