GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) – A study published by UF Health researchers suggests viruses like COVID-19 may damage more than your airway.

Doctors Katharina Busl and Christopher Robinson published their finding in the journal Critical Care Explorations.

They say while evidence is still being collected for COVID-19 other respiratory infections like SARS and MERS have caused serious and sometimes irreversible neurological complications in some patients.
