Coronavirus: Can Covid-19 Increase Alzheimer’s Risk?

The covid-19 disease is associated with many long-term health issues. It includes chronic diseases ranging from organ damage. Experts and scientists are investigating every aspect of the dangerous virus. Meanwhile, a team of researchers is working to establish a connection between Covid-19 and Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that causes brain cells to die and results in loss of memory.

With the passage of time, it ruins a person’s ability to think, due to which it becomes difficult to do his normal work. Covid-19 has the ability to relax the mind. It may also increase the likelihood of chronic neurological problems such as Alzheimer’s in people.

Effect of Covid-19 on the brain and associated symptoms

As a result of Covid-19, mild to severe inflammation sufferers may have a brain attack and stroke. People who have been cured of the infection have also complained of mental confusion, headaches, vertigo, blurred vision during and after recovery. In this way, the prevalence of neurological symptoms such as headaches and confusion in COVID-19 patients may reveal the association between coronavirus and Alzheimer’s.

Relationship between Alzheimer’s and Covid-19

A review has been published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia. There has been an attempt to link Covid-19 and possible Alzheimer’s disease. According to researchers, the onset of symptoms in people with the disease is evident around the age of 60 years. Experts believe that most people will survive the effects of Covid-19. However, in the long run, they may have to deal with many diseases such as dementia, poor quality of life and disability.

What does research reveal?

Representatives from 30 countries have come to a forum to examine the Alzheimer’s Association and the World Health Organization relationship to understand the long and short-term effects of Covid-19 on the brain. While the coronavirus has a tendency to elicit many brain-related malfunctions, the brain also has the potential to cause severe inflammation.
