Respiratory symptoms have been detected in COVID-19 infection, but the neurological disease is not well known in coronavirus infection. Yale School of Medicine of America has said this in their research. Common neurological complaints in COVID-19 patients include headaches, snoring, and loss of taste consciousness and seizures. A review of several studies revealed these things, which would enable better treatment of people infected with the coronavirus.
Review research published by the Journal of the American Medical Association mentions the potential system, comparing SARS CoV-2 with similar coronaviruses MERS and SARS, the central nervous system (CNS). In the study, scientists collected information about infections on the nervous system of the coronavirus and identified potential regenerative targets and entry pathways of SARS-CoV-2 into the CNS.
Citing earlier research published in the New England Journal of Medicine, he said that of the 58 patients studied, 49 were found to have neurological symptoms, including confusion and brain damage or encephalopathy.
Scientists based on studies of MERS and SARS stated that the coronavirus can enter the nervous system through several pathways, including the transfer of infected muscle cells, olfactory nerves connecting the nose and brain, which creates a sense of smell. Researchers believe that the virus can infect the CNS by spreading to the inner walls of blood vessels. Scientists say that the Trojan horse system affecting the brain has also been seen in HIV.
According to the study, the most common neurological complaints in COVID-19 are snoring and loss of taste consciousness, headaches, seizures, unconsciousness and brain damage. Scientists have written in the study. Early detection of damage to the nerve will lead to better healing.
