According to the new study, which was published in JAMA Neurology on July 1st, researchers from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London have reported neurological manifestations in children who have contracted COVID-19. The researchers examined 27 patients that were 18 years old or younger and found that four of the patients who were previously healthy developed new neurological symptoms. These neurological symptoms included encephalopathy, headaches, brainstem, and cerebellar signs, muscle weakness, and reduced reflexes.

The four patients were all transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU), and all four of them showed splenium signal changes. Three of the patients underwent electroencephalography, and it was found that a mild excess of slow activity was found in all three patients. On top of that, mild myopathic and neuropathic changes were seen in all three patients that had nerve conduction studies and electromyography. The paper says that all patients had no neurological improvement by the study's completion. The authors of the paper said, "Clinicians should be adding SARS-CoV-2 to their differential diagnosis for children presenting with new neurologic symptoms."

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
