The last study

According to British neurologists, SARS-CoV-2 can seriously damage the brain and nervous system, causing psychosis, paralysis and strokes that are often discovered too late.

New research showed that the new Coronavirus Sars-cov-2 apart from massively attacking the lungs and also attacking the respiratory tract, it also attacks other organs as well as seriously affecting the heart, and the nervous system, kidneys and skin.

Now, British neurologists published shocking details in the scientific journal Brain, according to which the new coronavirus can cause severe brain damage, even in patients with mild symptoms or in those who have already recovered. Often times, these consequences are detected too late, and even go unnoticed.

Neurology specialists from University College London (UCL) diagnosed 40 British COVID-19 patients with acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis (ADE). This inflammatory disease produces a degenerative destruction of the central nervous system that affects the myelin sheaths of the nerves of the brain and spinal cord.



Damages that often go undetected

The cases mentioned in the publication confirm the suspicions that COVID-19 causes long-term health problems in some patients, and many people continue to suffer, even after recovering, from shortness of breath and fatigue. Others have numbness or numbness in parts of the body, weakness, and memory problems.

“From a biological point of view, DAD also has certain similarities with multiple sclerosis, but the course of this is more severe and usually only occurs once. Some patients suffer, as a consequence, of a long-term disability, while others recover without problems ”, explains the scientist.

The full spectrum of brain diseases caused by SARS-CoV-2, as well as its consequences, has not yet been fully discovered, says Zandi. That's because many hospitalized patients are too ill to be examined with brain scans and other methods.
