Covid-19 can cause inflammation and bleeding in the brain, leading to various degrees of nerve damage


A recent study by scientists at Tulane University (USA) carried out on primates has specifically discovered how Covid-19 affects the central nervous system. The results are published in the journal Nature Communications.

The team found that in Covid-19 patients, the inflammation can attack the brain and cause serious damage. The result is reduced blood flow and oxygen to the brain, leading to nerve damage and the appearance of small hemorrhages in the brain, even death. Surprisingly, this condition still occurs in people with mild and moderate Covid-19 infections.

The study’s findings are also consistent with autopsies of people who have died of Covid-19. This shows that research on SARS-CoV-2 on primates may be the right model for understanding how the virus affects humans, said Dr. Tracy Fischer, associate professor of immunology and lead author of the study.

The effect on the nervous system is one of the Common symptoms of Covid-19. They can affect people of all ages, with or without underlying medical conditions, vary in severity and have the potential to have long-term effects on health.

The team hopes these new findings and many more in the future will help better understand how the virus works SARS-CoV-2 affect the brain. Thanks to that, science can find effective methods to treat these diseases Covid symptoms-19 is related to nerves, according to Science Daily.
