Coronavirus: Can COVID-19 increase risk of Alzheimers? Here’s what research has to say
The novel coronavirus has been associated with many long term health issues, ranging from organ damage to prolonged and chronic diseases. While medical professionals and scientists are investigating every aspect of the deadly virus, a team of researchers has been establishing the link between COVID-19 and Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s diseases is a neurological disorder that causes the brain cells to die and results in memory loss. Over time, it can take over and destroy a person’s thinking capabilities, leading to the inability to perform the simplest of tasks. That said, while COVID-19 has the potential to trigger brain dysfunctions, it is likely that it can also increase the possibilities of long term neurological problems such as Alzheimer’s in people.
