2020 has been a pretty tough year with health issues and massive economic crises around the world, and people on the planet are struggling. The novel virus has lots of effects, and while most of them seem to involve the lungs, the human brain is also highlight affected by the virus, according to the latest reports coming from BBC.
Coronavirus effects on the human brain
Apart from symptomatology involving the lungs, the brain is also affected, and the effects include headaches, strokes, and even seizures. BBC mentions an expert at the intensive care unit at Strasbourg University Hospital in northeast France who addressed what’s been happening in early March 2020.
It’s been revealed that in a few days, every single patient in the ICU had Covid-19, and they’re were various alarming symptoms.
“They were extremely agitated, and many had neurological problems – mainly confusion and delirium,” the expert stated.
Dr. Julie Helms continued and said, “We are used to having some patients in the ICU who are agitated and require sedation, but this was completely abnormal. It has been very scary, especially because many of the people we treated were very young – many in their 30s and 40s, even an 18-year-old.”
Coronavirus and encephalopathy
More experts all over the world addressed the severe effects of the novel coronavirus.
“We don’t know yet if the encephalopathy is more severe with Covid-19 than with other viruses, but I can tell you we’ve been seeing quite a lot of it,” according to neurologist Elissa Fory of the Henry Ford Foundation in Detroit, Michigan.
