The new coronavirus (Covid-19) can damage not only the lungs and respiratory system but also the brain and heart, a case in China reveals.

 

Dr Teerawat Hemachuta, the head of the Information Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases at Chulalongkorn University, posted on his Facebook account that there was a case of Covid-19 in China in which the patient had fever, headache and drowsiness.

 

An investigation found Covid-19 in the cerebrospinal fluid and the virus also damaged the patient's medulla oblongata leading to difficulty in breathing.

 

On March 31, there was a report of a patient with encephalitis like an influenza patient, abnormality in the central brain and acute haemorrhagic necrotizing encephalopathy caused by an immune system that struggled to chase down the virus, he said.

 

Therefore, Covid-19 cases may point to not only abnormality in the lungs but also the brain and maybe the heart too, Teerawat said.

One of the biggest failures of the usurpers and Thais in general has been the management of PR. Which is strange as they are getting help from CCP Xinhua. Seems everybody must get some yelp in.

 

Get one trusted spokesperson to do it daily, a Dr. Fauci of Thailand.

I wonder if the flu virus can do the same. Anyone knows?

Well I know personally of one person who had paralysis due to nerve damage caused by flu.  Her doctor said viruses can effect some people in different ways.

 

But one person effected in the OP, and it's news??

Would be interesting to know if the patient in this case had some other disease like MS which is known to damage the blood brain barrier.

 

If COVID-19 can cross this filter without another existing illness then I think we would already know about it.

Yes, it's well known curfews are the universal cure against viruses.

 

Good thinking.

Okay, so if I buy a doctor's jacket, wear sunglasses while working indoors,  and put my hand on the table in a methodical way,  then I must be a professional and you can believe my lies.
