A study published in the American Journal of Neurology suggests that COVID may be associated with neurological effects in people with neurologic illness.
Researchers at the University of Washington found that the risk of neurological damage in people who were infected with COVID was higher in the months following the onset of symptoms of the virus than in the weeks prior.
This was true for people who had mild or moderate illness, and for people with moderate to severe illness, according a study published by the study’s lead author, Dr Anastasia Bekhgoyan.
The authors of the study said that the study is important because it provides evidence of the link between the virus and the development of neurologic problems.
The researchers used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to investigate the relationship between the number of days between infection and neurologic symptoms.
It also looked at people who developed symptoms during their illness.
The results showed that people who experienced neurologic effects during their infection had a higher risk of developing a neurologic disorder than people who did not.
“We were interested in finding out whether the risk was a direct result of COVID, or whether it was due to some other underlying condition,” said lead author Dr Anadolu Gherson.
The findings support previous research that linked neurologic illnesses to COV-2 infection.
Previous studies have found that people with neurological disorders and the flu were at higher risk for developing COVID symptoms.
Dr Gheron said that her study shows that it is possible that COV can lead to brain damage, but she cautions that more research is needed before the relationship can be definitively proven.
“Our study is an important first step and we have not yet done any further research on the relationship with COV,” she said.
“There is an understanding that COVI is a neurodevelopmental disorder, and that it can be caused by COVID infection, but there is no proof of that.”
She said that further studies would be needed to confirm the findings.”COVID infection is associated with severe brain injury and neurological damage.
But this study suggests that the relationship is not as simple as that,” Dr Gheran said.
She said more research would be necessary to find out what caused COVI-19 to cause neurological damage, which she said could take some time.
“It’s important to look at the underlying mechanisms of the COVID vaccine.
We need to find ways to prevent these diseases from occurring in the first place,” she added.”
If COVID causes neurological damage that is a concern, we need to look more closely at the vaccine.”
