Delirium could be an early symptom of Covid-19: study

Nov 06, 2020 10:57 IST

Acute mental confusion, coupled with fever could be an early symptom of Covid-19, especially in the elderly, a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Immunology and Immunotherapy suggests. Scientists reviewed affects of coronavirus on the central nervous system, which may affect the brain due to three possible causes- hypoxia, inflammation of brain tissue and virus' ability to cross blood-brain barrier.
