    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    Nonetheless, measurement error of the exposure is a potential limitation, given that our main exposure variables were based on self-reported COVID-19; although the additional analysis including serology data helps to mitigate against this. Previous studies have mainly focused on severe COVID-19 or severe mental illness.8,10 Our results add to existing evidence by capturing broader and subclinical mental health impacts of COVID-19 illness in the population. However, further possible limitations are the lack of data available to examine possible variation in associations by COVID-19 severity, that only infections in the first year of the pandemic have been assessed, and that longitudinal follow-up is limited at present. Implications and conclusions: Our findings suggest that people who self-reported COVID-19 in the first year of the pandemic were subsequently more likely to experience poorer mental health outcomes. Our findings involving serology-confirmed infection, and the lack of attenuation in association over time, suggest that these associations might not be specific to SARS-CoV-2 infection and potentially reflect consequences of feeling unwell, anxieties related to a novel infection and infecting others or other factors such as social isolation and loss of pay. Further research is needed to investigate these possible underlying mechanisms and to examine whether associations persist over longer follow-up periods. Our findings highlight the important population mental heal...

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
