Earlier, scientists from the University of Washington said that the S1 protein, which forms the spines of the COVID-19 virus, helps it penetrate the human brain. According to the researchers, the most common symptoms of coronavirus are coughing and shortness of breath, as the disease most commonly affects the lungs.
At the same time, the coronavirus sometimes leads to various neurological symptoms – from headaches to seizures and seizures, and such complications can persist for a very long time. Experts suggest that their possible cause is the entry of the virus into the brain.
