What to know about the link between COVID-19 symptoms and brain damage
People with mild COVID-19 symptoms from the novel coronavirus can sometimes suffer long-term neurological damage, according to a recent study.
The news: A new study from Yale University researchers — which has not been peer-reviewed but can be read on bioRxiv — looked into how mice reacted to a COVID-19 infection and what happened to their brains.
Why it matters: Iwasaki said the hope is for researchers to learn more about how long COVID-19 symptoms start and why people will suffer long-term brain damage from a mild infection.
The bigger picture: For years now, researchers have been analyzing the link between COVID-19 and the disease’s effects on the brain.
