Covid-19 Infection Affect Parkinson’s Symptoms

A bad situation can get worse.

“SARS-CoV-2, the strain of coronavirus responsible for COVID-19 disease, may worsen Parkinson’s disease through several different mechanisms, such as interactions with the dopaminergic system in the brain or through systemic inflammatory responses.”

When we first began hearing of Covid-19, it was characterized mostly as a respiratory disease, but in the months since we’ve learned that the virus ravages multiple organ systems in the human body. But an interaction with the dopaminergic system is particularly worrisome for Parkinson’s patients, as dopamine deficiencies is one of the key elements of the disease.
