The effect of COVID on the brain is not unknown to us. Ever since, health experts found the non-respiratory effects of the infection, COVID is being seen under a different lens. The infection is not just limited to the respiratory tract; it affects major body organs as well. What is more serious is that there is a long term burden of COVID too. COVID does not stop after the incubation period of the coronavirus, it continues to linger in some people for weeks, months and even years later.
