The following article, Study Finds Children Born During Scamdemic have Lower IQs and Stunted Development, was first published on Flag And Cross.
A new study has found that children born during the coronavirus scamdemic have “significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.”
The study titled, “Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Early Child Cognitive Development: Initial Findings in a Longitudinal Observational Study of Child Health,” was conducted by researchers at Brown University of Providence, Rhode Island.
The researchers examined cognitive scores of children born between 2020 and 2021 and compared them to recorded scorns of children born between 2011 and 2019.
The study looked at the data of 672 children born in Rhode Island, all of whom are “healthy, full-term, and neurotypically-developing children” between three months and three years of age. The data included 154 cognitive assessments from 118 children between March 2020 and June 2021.
“Results highlight that even in the absence of direct SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 illness, the environmental changes associated [with the] COVID-19 pandemic [are] significantly and negatively affecting infant and child development,” the study said.
According to the New York Post:
Authors attribute the pattern to children being cognitively impaired from spending so much time inside with overwhelmed parents during the past year. While many adults have managed to tough it out, so much isolation at a critical juncture in the mental progress of infants has likely caused lasting damage.
Not being exposed to the wider world as much as pre-pandemic children and instead spending their infancy with stressed adults has left them at a significant mental disadvantage than their slightly older peers, according to the not-yet-peer-reviewed findings published Wednesday.
“Parents are stressed and frazzled … that interaction the child would normally get has decreased substantially,” said Deoni, adding that the lack of stimulation during the pandemic has created setbacks that will be hard for children to overcome. “The ability to course-correct becomes smaller the older that child gets.”
Using masks and cutting kids off from seeing people’s faces, keeping them locked up indoors, stopping them from socializing and improving social skills, and for the older ones, preventing them from going to school… all of this is destroying a generation of children.
