The novel coronavirus COVID-19 can literally destroy people’s lungs.
But according to Gizmodo, scientists are warning the damage could extend to our brains and minds, as well.
The virus may directly affect the nervous systems of some patients during both its acute phase and post-infection.
Also, the stress of the pandemic and its economic fallout is likely already leading to spikes in anxiety among the general public.
Past influenza pandemics have been closely linked to reported spikes in brain damage, mood changes, or muscular dysfunction.
University of California San Diego researchers hope that doctors keep a close eye on the brain health of covid-19 patients moving forward.
