macOS Catalina

mediaanalysisd causing high CPU usage since updating to Catalina

I recently updated to Catalina on my MacBook Air, and after doing so Photos spent about 5-6 days analyzing my pictures. After it finally finished, I noticed my machine was still lagging like mad. A quick look at activity monitor shows mediaanalysisd is at fault. I understand this is Photos analyzing faces in my pictures, but it seems to be doing this endlessly.

I tried the solution found in this topic

but that doesn't seem to work for Catalina as I cannot delete the .plist in LaunchAgents even with SIP disabled.

Any updated ideas/fixes for this?
