The New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic is raging all over the world. According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, the number of newly diagnosed new coronaviruses has exceeded 12 million and 548,000 have died. In addition to affecting the respiratory tract of the lungs, patients with new coronary pneumonia have the latest evidence that this virus may cause brain damage and cause serious neurological complications, including inflammation, unconsciousness, delirium, and even hallucinations and delusions. .
University College London (UCL) published a study yesterday (8th) describing the temporary brain dysfunction, stroke, nerve injury and other serious brain effects of 43 patients with new coronary pneumonia, and because these symptoms mostly occur in mild patients or are recovering In patients, the doctor is likely to ignore the symptoms.
A study published in the journal Brain by University College London pointed out that 9 patients with brain inflammation have been diagnosed with the rare disease “acute diffuse encephalomyelitis” (ADEM), which is more commonly seen in children , There may be a virus infection.
Michael Zandi of the UCL Institute of Neurology is one of the heads of the study. He said: “It is not yet known whether we will see a large number of brain injury cases related to this outbreak, similar to the 1918 influenza pandemic. After the epidemic, there was a lot of epidemic encephalitis in the 1920s and 1930s.”
In addition, some patients still have symptoms of breathlessness and breathlessness after recovery, while others have numbness, weakness, or memory problems , People worry about the long-term health effects of the new coronavirus.
Adrian Owen, a neuroscientist at Western University in Canada, said, “Now millions of people are infected with new coronary pneumonia. If 10 million people recover within a year and have cognitive deficits, it will affect their ability to work and their daily lives. The ability to live.”
The study mentioned that a 55-year-old patient with new coronary pneumonia had no history of mental illness, but she had abnormal behavior on the second day after her recovery and was discharged. She repeatedly put on and took off her coat and even had hallucinations. She reported seeing monkeys and lions at home. Therefore, he was hospitalized again and gradually improved after taking antipsychotic drugs.
The brain diseases caused by the new coronavirus may not be fully discovered at present, because many diagnosed patients are in serious condition and cannot undergo brain examination. Another research director Ross Paterson said that given the new crown pneumonia just a few months, the virus is not yet clear what will bring long-term damage, “the doctor must know may affect the nervous, because early diagnosis can improve the outcome of patients.”
Order The concern is that the virus may have left damage in the brains of a few diagnosed patients, but symptoms will only appear after a few years. After the influenza pandemic of 1918, as many as one million people suffered from epidemic encephalitis in the 1920s and 1930s. Researchers have called on clinicians around the world to be vigilant about the complications caused by the new coronavirus, but it is currently impossible to say whether there will be a pandemic of large-scale brain injury in those years.
George Floyd, an African-American man, was killed by a white police officer on his knees on the 25th of last month, triggering anti-racism and anti-police demonstrations around the world. Locals have launched “Black Lives Matter” (Black Lives Matter) , Referred to as BLM) movement, the words “BLM” are written on many major urban streets. A pair of white men and women in Martinez, San Francisco Bay Area, California, smeared the word “BLM” on the street with black paint last Saturday (4th). They were charged by the authorities with violations of civil rights, vandalism, and There are 3 counts of possession of vandalism or graffiti tools.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office of Contra Costa County in the Bay Area, the phrase “BLM” on the road in front of the Wakefield Taylor Courthouse in downtown Martinez, by local residents in July After applying for and approving the permit on the 1st, it is drawn on July 4. On the same day, a passerby photographed a pair of white men and women using rollers and black paint to cover part of the letters on the street. After investigation, the two men and women were identified as 53-year-old man Nelson (David Nelson) and 42-year-old woman Anderson (Nicole Anderson).
Allegedly, Nelson and Anderson broke the slogans on the street last Saturday, in which Nelson had a quarrel with passers-by, and that racial discrimination was a left-wing lie.
The police allege that the two were accused of infringing civil rights, vandalism under $400; vandalism or graffiti tools. The District Attorney’s Office stated that these were minor offences and that once convicted, they would face one year’s imprisonment in the county prison.
Prosecutor Diana Becton mentioned in a statement that the root causes and side effects of systemic racism must be addressed. The “black life is also life” movement is an important civil rights event that deserves everyone’s attention.
The number of new diagnoses of new coronary pneumonia exceeded 12.29 million cases, and more than 550,000 people died. In the United States, where the epidemic is most severe, the number of confirmed cases exceeded 3.11 million and more than 130,000 died. Brazil is the second, with more than 1.75 million diagnoses and 69,000 deaths.
In Florida, the number of deaths in a single day hit a record high on Thursday, with an increase of 120 dead and nearly 9,000 diagnosed. A television station in Miami, including news anchors, at least 9 people were diagnosed, and 150 people are still being tested. The state government has expanded its testing, but the school ball school resumption plan has not been suspended. Governor De Santis described education as a necessity of life as well as food and retail.
The epidemic of new crown pneumonia in South America is grim. Bolivia’s interim President Jeanine Anez confirmed the new crown pneumonia and is the second confirmed national leader in South America.
53-year-old Agnes said on the social networking site Twitter that after four cabinet members recently tested positive for the virus, their test results were also positive. She said that she was “in good condition” and would isolate herself for 14 days before conducting another test. During quarantine will continue to work.
