How the coronavirus gets into the brain and what it does there
The coronavirus not only affects the lungs. 
Today it is considered a multi-organ virus and attacks the brain, among other things. That's how it gets there.

Dortmund - the coronavirus That has preoccupied us for months is considered a dangerous lung diseaseHowever, the virus not only has the effect of entrainment, but it is also possible brain damage. Researchers have now figured out how the virus makes its way into our minds.

SymptomsCough, fever, loss of smell and taste

Coronavirus infection also affects other organs, such as the brain

COVID-19 - this is the name of the disease that can be activated by the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirusThis disease is much more than pneumoniabecause COVID-19 does not only work when taken away Other organs such as the kidneys, heart or brain can also be affected (all news about the coronavirus in NRW at

The knowledge researchers since the middle of the year. Scientists around the world and several university hospitals have been able to show how a Covid-19 disease can affect the organs. They could also be neurologically damaging this resulting in various corona symptoms such as headache, confusion, or loss of smell and taste.

Coronavirus can cause severe brain damage

Patients don't even have to have a severe corona history to suffer from such symptoms. Even if they are mild, they can be serious brain damage performance. Already register medication for consequential damage such as delusions, nerve damage or strokesIn the case of diagnosed psychoses, dementia-like conditions or confusion, the age played itself out loud.

The Robert Koch Institute has now also influenced the brain in the Sars-CoV-2 profileIt states: “As neurological symptoms headache, dizziness and other disorders that indicate the neuroinvasive properties of the virus are described. In addition, long-term symptoms of fatigue, memory problems, word-finding disorders or severe dizziness are possible with regard to long-term consequences, even with milder courses.

According to researchers, permanent damage to the brain from the coronavirus

For a long time, it was unclear whether the coronavirus was even attacking the brain or if there was some other trigger. Scientists from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Charité University Medicine have now found that the antibodies are the ones to trigger the responses in the brainFormed as a result of the corona infection and can also be used in addition to the virus to attack brain cells.

The fatal thing: the brain cannot regenerate like researcher Zulfi Haneef of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston in communication about the effects of the coronavirus on the brain. Damage to the brain is therefore likely to be permanent.

The coronavirus reaches the brain via the olfactory mucous membrane

After a long time, the researchers did not know how it went Coronavirus all the way to the brain Experts in neuropathology, pathology, forensics, virology and clinical care have now acquired new knowledge. The results of the analysis were released in the journal Natural Neuroscience.

Accordingly, it is coronavirus via the olfactory mucous membrane to the brainThe olfactory mucosa is located in the upper turbinates on the so-called roof of the nose on both sides of the upper nasal septum. There are around 10 million olfactory cells as ENT doctors explain online.

The coronavirus affects vital functions in the brain

In their research, researchers found the highest viral load in the olfactory mucosaThere they could even prove to have intact particles of the coronavirus"We assume that this is based on these data. SARS-CoV-2 can use the olfactory mucosa as a gateway to the brain," writes Prof. Dr. Frank Heppner, Director of Neuropathology in a statement.

The olfactory mucous membrane uses the coronavirus. Accordingly, neuroanatomical connections such as the olfactory nerve are around the brainIt should keep moving from nerve cell to nerve cell. In addition, the researchers found the coronavirus in areas of the brain that have vital functions, such as controlling breathability.

The coronavirus is likely already making breathing difficult in the brain

"This cannot be ruled out in severe cases. Covid-19 courses The virus attack in these brain regions dies. It is difficult to breathe - in addition to the restriction of the respiratory function by the virus trap the lungs ." The same can apply to the heart and circulatory system, ”said Will Prof. Heppner quoted in the message of charity.

The researchers point out, however, that the study has just passed away. Crown patients who had a serious course during their lifetime were examined. Or the results for patients too. When using this experience, no easy or moderate course can currently be said.
