COVID-19, also known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2), is a severe disease. It can cause different types of symptoms including shortness of breath, fever, cough, fatigue and sore throat. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk to develop more complex complications due to the infection. Until August 6th, 2020, COVID-19 has caused 700, 000 deaths across the Earth; however, the actual death number could be higher than 700,000. COVID-19’s origin is still remained unknown, but the speculation is targeted to bats or pangolins. Although COVID-19 is a disease target human’s respiratory system, based on the research and clinical cases of COVID-19, evidence shows that COVID-19 can also invade human’s central nervous system (CNS).
