COVID-19 Causing Brain Complications and Neurological Problems Globally

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Cases of brain complications linked to COVID-19 are occurring across the globe, a new review by University of Liverpool researchers has shown.

Published in The Lancet Neurology, the study found that strokes, delirium and other neurological complications are reported from most countries where there have been large outbreaks of the disease.

COVID-19 has been associated mostly with problems like difficulty breathing, fever and cough. However, as the pandemic has continued, it has become increasingly clear that other problems can occur in patients. These include confusion, stroke, inflammation of the brain, spinal cord, and other kinds of nerve disease.

A recent Liverpool-led study of COVID-19 patients hospitalised in the UK found a range of neurological and psychiatric complications that may be linked to the disease.

To get a sense of the wider picture, the researchers brought together and analysed findings from COVID-19 studies across the globe that reported on neurological complications. The review, which included studies from China, Italy and the USA among others, found almost 1000 patients with COVID-19-associated brain, spinal cord and nerve disease.

Research Fellow, Dr Suzannah Lant, who was working on the project, said: “Whilst these complications are relatively uncommon, the huge numbers of COVID-19 cases globally mean the overall number of patients with neurological problems is likely to be quite large.”

One of the complications found to be linked to COVID-19 is encephalitis, which is inflammation and swelling of the brain.

Dr Ava Easton, CEO of the Encephalitis Society, and co-author on the paper said: “It is really important that doctors around the world recognise that COVID-19 can cause encephalitis and other brain problems, which often have potentially devastating, life-changing consequences for patients.”

Professor Tom Solomon, senior author on the paper and Director of the Global COVID-Neuro Network, added: “Although such patients are being seen everywhere the virus occurs, many of the reports are lacking in detail. We are currently pooling data from individual patients all around the world, so that we can get a more complete picture. Doctors who would like to contribute patients to this analysis can contact us via the Global COVID-Neuro Network website.”

    Major Conflicts Of Interest As Liverpool is Bill Gates’ Biotechnology Powerhouse – Over 45 Connections Made – Wuhan & Liverpool Vaccine Labs – Coronavirus 2014/15 Alder Hey Study – Alfie Evans Test Run and More..

    As you read this article, you will notice how this was the start of a journey that ends with you seeing Liverpool as a Powerhouse in BioManufacturing and BioTechnology. Merseyside has been subject to £Billions of funding that has been funneled into the medical-industrial complex that has been built within the United Kingdom over the past few years. Every major player is mentioned in this article from Bill Gates to GlaxoSmithKline, World Health Organisation, CSL, Bayer Corporation, The Department of Health (UK) (NIHR), NHS Trust Merseyside, Alder Hey Hospital, Liverpool Tropical School of Medicine, PATH, Imperial College London, Multiple Universities, including Liverpool University, and more. This has been welcomed by many key figures on Merseyside including Mayor Joe Anderson who praised the investments that have been pumped into Seqirus Vaccines in Speke, a large vaccination manufacturing plant that has formerly been known as, Evans Vaccines, Novartis Vaccines, Chiron Vaccines, and Elnery No. 1979 LTD. For the most part, these companies have been linked to mass production of vaccines that have often led to severe scandals. Bill Gates has his fingerprints all over these operations and organisations. You will be shocked to see how the same end-of-life procedures, using the same cocktail of death drugs, and a ventilator, that was used on Alfie Evans, is being used on alleged COVID-19 Patients.
