SARS-CoV-2 infection and persistence in the human body and brain at autopsy

The research by American scientists has shown that SARS-CoV-2 can be detected in the brain of people with COVID-19 not only at the beginning of infection but also up to 230 days after the diagnosis. Such research results are a significant breakthrough compared to previously published studies that did not show such a long detection of the virus within the brain. The paper was published in Nature.
