UK Study: Brain Problems Linked to Even Mild Virus Infections
Potentially fatal COVID-19 complications in the brain including delirium, nerve damage and stroke may be more common than initially thought, a team of British-based doctors warned Wednesday.

Silver Nanoparticles as Potential Antiviral Agents

Oct 24, 2011 – Therefore, the antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties of silver ions and silver compounds have been extensively studied.
Only recently some studies have emerged showing that metal nanoparticles can be effective antiviral agents against HIV-1 [37,38,39,40], hepatitis B virus [41], respiratory syncytial virus [42], herpes simplex virus type 1 [43,44], monkeypox virus [45], influenza virus [46] and Tacaribe virus [47].

Dozens More Cases of Neurological Problems in COVID-19 Reported:

Dozens More Cases of Neurological Problems in COVID-19 Reported: SARS-CoV-2 generally attacks the lungs, but researchers are also stressing its effects on the brain in a fraction of patients. Newly described case reports add to growing evidence that COVID-19 infections can result in severe, long-lasting neurological complications—including inflammation, psychosis, delirium, nerve damage, and strokes—even among patients experiencing mild cases of the virus with few other symptoms. In some instances, the new study claims, these neurological effects were the first manifestation of the disease.
