Updated: few hours ago

Houston, Aug 2 (PTI) COVID-19 infections may predispose individuals to developing irreversible neurological conditions, according to a study.

The finding, published in the journal Ageing Research Reviews, also shows that COVID-19 may increase the likelihood of strokes and the chance of developing persistent lesions that can lead to brain bleeding.

The team, led by Joy Mitra and Muralidhar L. Hegde, from the Houston Methodist Research Institute, US, noted that a great deal of research has shown that the impacts of COVID-19 go far beyond the actual time of infection.
