A video presentation of the recent study entitled “SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Persistence Throughout the Human Body and Brain”.

Key points:

  • Results are from 44 autopsies showing evidence of SARS CoV-2 infection and persistence through the human body and brain.
    .
  • Indirect evidence of replication competent virus in the brain.
    .
  • There were populations of viral variants found in the brain that were not detected in the respiratory tract suggesting there is seeding of the virus in the brain and ongoing replication in the brain.
    .
  • SARS CoV-2 can replicate within tissue for over 3 months after infection in some individuals, with RNA failing to clear from multiple compartments for up to 230 days.
    .
  • The brain is an immune protected site that would allow replication and evolution of the virus
