COVID Brain Fog: According to a new study by researchers from John Hopkins University, the typical ‘COVID brain fog; symptom experienced by many infected by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus could be due to the occlusion of brain capillaries by large megakaryocyte cells.


 
According to the study abstract, “Evidence suggests brain involvement in the COVID-19 disease. Manifestations in acutely ill individuals often include confusion and alteration of consciousness. After this phase, many patients experience continued neurologic symptoms such as dysexecutive syndrome or “COVID brain fog.” However, in autopsies from patients with COVID-19 who had neurologic abnormalities, investigations have largely not identified the chronic inflammation or marked neural changes typically associated with viral infection, and viral genetic material has been minimal or absent. It has been difficult to reconcile the experience of patients and clinicians that COVID-19 is altering cognition with tissue studies that show no evidence of encephalitis involving high
