Of the more than 16,000 hospitalized Covid-19 patients examined, 13% developed serious neurological conditions including, most commonly, encephalopathy upon admission.

A peer-reviewed study published in April in the journal Critical Care Explorations found a correlation between neurological conditions and the severity of COVID-19 symptoms.

This new international study examined otherwise healthy patients who have developed neurological impairments after being admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of COVID-19.

Encephalopathy is an umbrella term for brain disease or damage that causes a marked change in the way the brain works, or how the brain and body interact.
