Does Taking Damage Affect Spread?

I've noticed during play and while watching vids that when I take a lot of dmg at once, like from a shotgun, in addition to aimpunch, a lot of my shots that are clearly on target still end up missing even though it's fairly close range. I couldn't find any quantitative info on spread in this game so I'm wondering if your spread temporarily increases when you receive a large amount of dmg all at once.

    Yes. I don't have any valid numeric data, but I do know that taking damage severely impacts your accuracy (not recoil, that's a matter of how long you've fured your weapon uncontrolled).

    There's also an augment that decreases this by 30%<, namely Focus.

    when you get hit you receive 'aimpunch' : your mouse is pushed upwards slightly and STAYS THERE. this effect is proportional to the damage.

    your gun's accuracy should be unaffected, only where your mouse is pointing is

    Yeah I'm well aware of aimpunch and focus. What I'm talking about is when you get hit, your crosshair is still clearly on target, but you are still missing.

    in that case, no, you're just missing
