Study: Babies Who've Spent Their Entire Young Lives In Lockdown Have Significantly Stunted IQs, on the Level of Actual Cognitive Impairment

Great: babies born during the pandemic have much, much lower IQs than normal, study says. 22% lower!

It's speculated that this is due to... being locked in the house and not getting the usual level of stimulation they would usually get being out on walks and meeting other people.

COVID-19 has been debilitatingly boring for newborns, disturbing new research has found.

Scientists have discovered that the coronavirus pandemic significantly impacted the intelligence of children born during it: Living the entirety of their lives in lockdown has seriously stunted their cognitive development.

Researchers analyzed the cognitive performances of 672 children born in Rhode Island, 188 of them born well into the pandemic (after July 2020), 308 born before it (prior to January 2019) and 176 of them born during its beginning stage (between January 2019 and March 2020). They found that children born during the pandemic have pronouncedly lower IQs than those born before it.

"It's not subtle by any stretch," lead study author and Brown University associate professor of pediatric research Sean Deoni told the Guardian of the trend. "You don't typically see things like that, outside of major cognitive disorders."

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.

Facial recognition is one of the earliest and most important tasks a baby's brain learns to perform. Perhaps seeing a world of masked faces has stunted babies in this critical, first-step task.

Let's hope that this finding is not true and just due to experimental error.

But it may well be true. And we may well have lowered the IQs of babies to the level of the cognitively-impaired for the sake of Virtue Signaling and Karen Mobbing.

I know I'll have this article bookmarked the next time some hysterical bougie fascist tells me we should do anything if it saves just one life...

Someone send this article to Hot Air. No, not to AllahPundit. Cut out the middleman and send it straight to Karen Townsend or John Sexton.
