Brain dysfunction was more common among patients with coronavirus in intensive care than patients with other respiratory diseases.

Scientists from Vanderbilt University, writes the EurekAlert! Portal, said that patients with COVID-19 develop an inability to navigate in space, concentrate, and even lose consciousness.

It turned out that 82% of patients who have been in a coma for 10 days or more have these symptoms. 88% of them were connected to artificial lung ventilation devices.

The scientists emphasized that brain dysfunction in patients developed when they realized that coronavirus infection is deadly.
