The researchers published the results of their work in the authoritative journal Nature, and the Izvestia edition briefly retells it.
Scientists have learned that the coronavirus can spread through body tissues and outside the lungs. It is also known that some people who have recovered from COVID-19 suffer from residual symptoms for a long time. During this time, the virus continues to affect the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
At the same time, scientists were convinced that the coronavirus infects human organs even when the disease is asymptomatic or mild. And SARS-CoV-2 RNA is found in the body, including the brain, after up to 230 days from the onset of the first symptoms.
