Coronavirus Update-Neurological Sequela

Posted by Margaret Donohue on May 17, 2020 at 2:25 AM

The coronavirus COVID-19 is showing a propensity towards neurological symptoms.  This is similar to other coronaviruses that infect people.  There are 7 corona viruses that infect people. 

  • 229E
  • NL63
  • OC43
  • HKU1
  • MERS-CoV
  • SARS-CoV
  • SARS-CoV-2
Coronaviruses infect pigs, cattle, horses, camels, cats, dogs, rodents, birds, bats, rabbits, ferrets, mink, and other animals.  Coronaviruses are linked to the common cold causing 2-10% of cold symptoms secondary only to rhinoviruses.  Neurological manifestations are noted in MERS and SARS variants and are now seen in COVID-19.

In humans, people with COVID-19 develop neurological symptoms by inhaling the virus directly through their nose.  The virus exploits angiotencin receptor cells (ACE-2) travels up the nasal canal to the olfactory bulb, to the olfactory epithelium and to the temporal lobes in the cortex, the brainstem, and cerebral spinal fluid.  In some cases of COVID-19 there are endothelial ruptures in the brain causing bleeding into the cortex.  Widespread infection can impact the heart, lungs, kidneys, and circulatory systems due to dysregulation of homeostasis.  Brain involvement with swelling, problems with bleeding or clotting can be fatal.

Neurological symptoms include problems with smell, taste, memory, headaches, weakness, fatigue, increased fever, stroke, hemmorhage, Guillan Barre Syndrome, inflammatory skin reactions (Kawasaki-Like Syndrome), hallucinations, vivid dreams, seizures, and encephalopathies.

Long term-sequela following survival of the initial infection are theoretically possible.  These include Parkinson like symptoms, Multiple Sclerosis likje symptoms, and progressive neurological problems.  Psychological symptoms including anxiety, depression, delirium, dementia, and psychotic like symptoms are also possible.

With 30 current mutations of COVID-19 as of April 2020, it is unlikely that the virus will "disappear" on it's own.  It is far more likely that humans will eventually adapt to the virus, and that it will mutate to a less lethal form.

The government of Pakistan has banned all online casinos in the country. Why is this so? Is it because they do not like their guests spending cash on casinos? Can it be because the government is worried about organised crime running rampant in the country and the danger that online gaming may bring?

No, its because they realised there was money to be made from the booming Pakistani casino market. There is absolutely no casino in Pakistan yet. Its totally legal to own real estate in casinos but to not run more than four cards at a time at a live casino also to only have two land cards in a hand in an internet poker game. However, how could find a casino when there wasn't any Pakistani cities with sufficient population to support you? That is where I come in. How do you find a casino in a nation without a single casino on its own doorstep? - ??????
I've been operating in the casino and slot business in the united kingdom for the past 10 decades and I have played many offline and online casino games. My occupation as a consultant has provided me some insight to how to use the Betting Exchange to generate income and I will tell you that its very simple to earn money utilizing the market. You can use your credit card to deposit into a"blind" or even non-player account and play against the casino live gamers, who'll have put their bets before you entering the room. Playing on a live casino having real people also affords you the chance to utilize a top roller handle and the opportunity to win huge jackpots which you would not have the ability to reach in your home country. Although casinos use different vocabulary to predict what is essentially the identical thing, I'll use exactly the exact terms to explain what it is you are doing if playing in an online casino.

The EU's medicines regulator says unusual blood clots should be listed as a very rare side effect of the AstraZeneca vaccine for Covid-19.
After a study looking at 86 European cases, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) concluded the benefits of the vaccine outweighed the risk.
