If COVID-19 really does lead to long lasting physiological and especially neurological damage and we really aren't doing anything to contain it, then it borders on being an actual existential-level threat.

    Perhaps the closest analogue to your proposed scenario is industrialization. We are well aware of the effect of pollution and toxic chemicals in the environment on development and neurological capacities to the vast majority of the population and we are probably seeing a stunting of human potential, but I don't think Covid would approach the pernicious level of industrialization.

    Perhaps a "positive" is that it could spur more development into neurology, neuro-psychology, & even BCI? Similar to how someone here posted the lung damage could lead to more investment regarding synthetic organs.

    Of course we're likely to see the negative effects first, but hopefully we'll end up realizing how important mental health is & the science regarding it.
