And researchers from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine found that 42% of the patients in the study had neurological symptoms that affect the functioning of muscles and the brain before they were admitted to hospital.
While symptoms appeared on 62% of the injured who were hospitalized for treatment.
In the study, published in the journal, the researchers said Annals of the American Neurological Association, 82% of the infected people have suffered at some stage of the disease from symptoms such as headache, change in the shape and functions of the brain, or encephalopathy, which may lead to serious illness or even death.
The study also counted that 42% of these people suffered from muscle pain, while 37% of them suffered from pain and headache, and 30% of the patients suffered from dizziness.
At lower rates, 16% of them lost their sense of taste and 11% of their sense of smell, and all of these symptoms are related to neurotransmitters.
The study, which was conducted between March and April, of 509 people with corona, who were distributed over nine hospitals and a medical center in Chicago, revealed that those who had these symptoms had a longer stay in the hospital compared to those who did not show all symptoms.
In the normal case, the injured person may stay in the hospital for five days only, while those who suffered from neurological symptoms remained for a full nine days.
Surprisingly, in the study, younger patients were more likely to have symptoms compared to older people.
6% of the patients included in the study were diagnosed by doctors or neurosurgeons for medical follow-up.
Stroke and nerve damage …
This is not the only study that sheds light on the effects that the Corna virus has on the nervous system, as similar studies have previously reached alarming results.
Coronavirus can lead to neurological complications such as delirium, encephalitis, stroke and nerve damage.
A study published at the University of London in July showed that 10 out of 43 COVID-19 cases showed temporary brain defect and delirium, while 12 patients had brain inflammation, eight others had strokes and eight had nerve damage.
As indicated in a report published last April for the site Gamma Neurology A third of those who have had Corona suffer from neurological problems of varying severity, from loss of smell to a stroke.
