Preliminary findings by U.S. researchers suggest children born during the COVID-19 pandemic show lower IQ scores than those who were born before January 2020, but the underlying causes are still unknown.
It may be due to the first 1,000 days of a child’s life being the most crucial to development.
The findings were posted in medRxiv ahead of peer review on Aug. 11, stemming from a survey among roughly 605 children in Rhode Island, most of them White, including 39 born in 2018 and 2019. . .
The study of pre-pandemic babies shows that they had an IQ ranging from 98.5 to 107.3.
But the IQs of babies born during the pandemic sharply fell 27 to 37 points. (Read more from “STUDY: Babies Born During COVID-19 Pandemic Tied With Lower IQ” HERE)
