Study: Corona has an indirect effect on the brain
American scientists have found brain damage, indirectly caused by the emerging corona virus, in people who have contracted it.
During a study of the effect of the Corona virus on the brain, a group of scientists discovered signs of damage resulting from thinning and leakage of blood vessels.
But these scientists, from the US National Institute of Health, did not see any signs of the virus in the tissue samples,
indicating that the damage was not due to a direct virus attack on the brain.
The study, published by the New England Journal of Medicine, said that scientists have found that the brain of someone infected with Coronavirus may be
susceptible to damage to small blood vessels.
The study indicated that the reason for this may lie in an inflammatory response of the body to the entry of the virus.
The scientists conducted an in-depth study of brain tissue samples from 19 patients who died after being infected with the Coronavirus,
from March to July 2020, whose ages ranged from 5 years to 73 years.
Many respondents had one or more risk factors: diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and others. Brain scans revealed several bright spots in the
brain that indicate inflammation, as well as some dark spots that indicate bleeding.
