Severe brain damage possible even with mild covid 19 symptoms
There are numerous signs that the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 not only attacks the lungs and respiratory tract, but also other organs on a massive scale.It can severely affect the heart, vessels, nerves, kidneys, and skin.
British neurologists have now published shocking details in the journal "Brain," which suggests SARS-CoV-2 can cause severe brain damage — even in patients with mild symptoms or those in recovery. Often this damage is detected very late or not at all.
Neurologists at the University College London (UCL) diagnosed acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis (ADEM) in more than 40 British COVID-19 patients. This inflammatory disease causes a degenerative destruction of the central nervous system, affecting the myelin sheaths of the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.
Different degrees of damage
Of the patients examined, 12 suffered from inflammation of the central nervous system, 10 from a transient encephalopathy (brain disease) with delirium or psychosis, eight from strokes, and a further eight from problems of the peripheral nerves, mostly with the diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome. This is an immune reaction that attacks the nerves and causes paralysis and is fatal in 5% of cases. A 59-year-old woman died of the complication.
Scientists have never before seen another virus attack the brain in the same way COVID-19 does, points out Dr. Michael Zandi. He is a lead author of the study, as well as a consultant at UCL Hospitals. What is unusual is the severe brain damage even in patients with mild symptoms.
Damage often goes unrecognized
The cases now published confirm fears that COVID-19 is causing long-term health problems in some patients. Many patients remain breathless and tired long after their recovery. Other recovering patients suffer from numbness, weakness, and memory problems.
Stay Home, Stay Safe. Work from Home, Work Hard so the economy recovers.
It is all doable.
The virus - be it colds Corona or Sars2 Corona: cannot exist in a viable form outside the human body. That's why the mask, the distancing, the hand washes, the sanitizers - if it cannot find another host, it gets disintegrated!! With strong alcohol, it destructs within short time, soap water will disintegrate the fat content and destroy it!!! If a true and strict "NAKABANDI" is done by entire population theoretically we can eliminate the virus in 14 days: that's why the magic lock-down periods!!!
It is because our brethren - both the illiterate and the literate and even some educated misused the lifting of restrictions, we have seen the pandemic becoming stronger rather than ending.
In a previous post is the only Mantra that can eliminate the rogue virus entity.
Follow the Mantra and live long and healthy lives!!! more
