Dr. Scott Gottlieb has done research on this topic, and he had made an announcement to the news and made a warning to everyone about the possibility of long-term memory loss or brain damage to the patients that are suffering from coronavirus.
Even though this news is terrifying and can cause panic among the people, it is still essential to keep the masses informed about this new development.
“In short, the study suggests that there could be some long-term loss of brain tissue from Covid, and that would have some long-term consequences,” the former FDA chief and CNBC contributor said.
The study and research had been done in the United Kingdom, where the brain structure and function of people are checked before and after the affected coronavirus infection. The main purpose of this was to look for the effect that coronavirus has on the central nervous system and the neurons.
“You could compensate for that over time, so the symptoms of that may go away, but you’re never going to regain the tissue if, in fact, it’s being destroyed as a result of the virus,” said Gottlieb. He also said that the destruction of the brain tissue could also be causing the loss of smell and taste in the people who are infected by Covid-19.
This has created a lot of discussion among the people. However, the ultimate result or announcement had not been made yet. This is something that is going to add to the distress of the pandemic. But we have to be well prepared for it.
Different people react differently to COVID-19. Most infected persons will feel better without medical attention after developing mild to moderate symptoms.

To Safeguard Oneself and Others Close to One,
When it’s your turn to be vaccinated, do so as quickly as possible and in accordance with local recommendations.
You should avoid close contact with other people, even if they don’t seem sick, and maintain a distance of at least 1 metre. Stay away from large groups of people and prolonged eye contact.
When avoiding exposure is not an option due to lack of space or ventilation, a mask should be used.
Use an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water periodically to keep your hands clean.
When you have to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your bent elbow. Always wash your hands and throw away used tissues.
You should stay in isolation if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for it.
