Neurological Associations of COVID-19: Neurological Associations of COVID-19: Pooling global data on NeuroCOVID
The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by SARS-CoV-2, is of a scale not seen since the 1918 influenza pandemic. Although the predominant clinical presentation is with respiratory disease, neurological manifestations frequent. In this episode, it is all about pooling global data on NeuroCOVID. Leads of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) Neurocovid Registry and the Global Consortium Study (GCS) of Neurological Dysfunction in COVID-19 will present their registries. We will also present first data from the COVID-Neuro Network’s global meta-analysis of individual patient data on neurological associations of COVID-19. We will also have a brief literature digest from @Neuropsychcovid.
