In Serbia, over 25,000 people had a stroke in a single year, with Covid being the leading cause
The age limit for patients with cerebral infarction is being reduced due to the consequences of Covid infection!
This is true for both people who had a severe infection and those who “pushed it out” without experiencing severe symptoms. In Serbia, there were 25,685 strokes in a single year, according to the most recent Institute of Public Health data.
Colonel Professor Dr. Ranko Raicevic, President of the Association of Neurologists of Serbia and Head of the MMA Neurology Clinic, issued this warning to domestic media, saying it confirmed the suspicions that the coronavirus could have serious long-term consequences.
Yes. It is now known that the global epidemic has influenced the development of strokes in children. This highlights the infection’s high risk of causing systemic disorders, particularly in patients with high-risk coagulation disorders. “Stroke caused by cerebral artery thrombosis,” claims Dr. Ranko Raicevic.
One in every three Covid patients suffer from neurological complications.
“In people who have recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection, the post-Covid syndrome is a new clinical entity.” It includes both patients admitted to the hospital due to the severity of symptoms and patients with a mild clinical picture of the infection. Symptoms and warning signs: Many organ systems have been compromised, with respiratory, cardiac, neurological, and psychiatric issues dominating. About 5% to 6% of these patients face serious depression.
The doctor also discussed whether new neurological effects might appear years after the infection.
“Psychiatric post-Covid syndrome is defined as the appearance of signs and symptoms from neurology and psychiatry in patients after more than 12 weeks of acute infection, both neurologically and conditionally.” It is also much more common after other viral infections like the flu, and it lasts a long time.
