Doctors have named another complication that occurs after COVID. Reedus

An international team of scientists has published a study that says that coronavirus patients have another complication.

Statistics show that many patients suffering from COVID-19 exhibit neurological symptoms ranging from loss of smell to an increased risk of stroke… There are also longer-term effects on brainincluding myalgic encephalomyelitis (chronic fatigue syndrome), doctors say.


These complications can be caused by a viral infection in brain tissue… We are getting more and more evidence that the virus affects many body systems, not just the lungs.write doctors.

Many of the symptoms we attribute to infection are actually caused by defensive reactions of the immune system. A runny nose during a cold is not the direct effect of the virus, but the result of the immune system’s response to the cold virus.

General malaise, fatigue, fever, and weakness caused by the activation of specialized immune cells in the brain, called neuroimmune cells, and signals in the brain.

These changes in brain and behavior, while causing discomfort, are extremely beneficial actions of our bodies in fighting disease.

During a new study, scientists found that neuroimmune cells that are found in synapses – connections between brain cells – necessary for the normal formation of memory.

Unfortunately, with the help of these cells, diseases like COVID-19 can enter the brain and cause both acute neurological symptomsand long-term illness. Because COVID-19 involves the massive release of inflammatory signals, the effects of this disease on memory are particularly dangerous.

The potential link between COVID-19 and persistent memory effects is based on observations of other diseases. For example, many patients recovering from heart attack or bypass surgery, report long-term memory problems that take a long time to recover.

It will be many years before we know if COVID-19 infection is causing an increased risk of cognitive decline or Alzheimer’s. But this risk can be reduced or mitigated through the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. – concluded the experts.
