    Severe disease MESHD and uremia MESHD are risk factors for neurological complications of coronavirus disease MESHD-2019 (COVID-19). An in-depth analysis of a case series was conducted to describe the neurological manifestations of patients with COVID-19 and gain pathophysiological insights that may guide clinical decision-making – especially with respect to the cytokine release syndrome MESHD (CRS). Extensive clinical, laboratory, and imaging phenotyping was performed in five patients. Neurological presentation included confusion MESHD confusion HP, tremor MESHD tremor HP, cerebellar ataxia MESHD ataxia HP, behavioral alterations, aphasia MESHD aphasia HP, pyramidal syndrome MESHD, coma MESHD coma HP, cranial nerve palsy, dysautonomia, and central hypothyroidism HP hypothyroidism MESHD. Neurological disturbances were remarkably accompanied by laboratory evidence of CRS. SARS-CoV-2 was undetectable in the cerebrospinal fluid. Hyperalbuminorachy and increased levels of the astroglial protein S100B were suggestive of blood SERO-brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction. Brain MRI findings comprised evidence of acute leukoencephalitis (n = 3, of whom one with a hemorrhagic form), cytotoxic edema MESHD edema HP mimicking ischemic stroke HP stroke MESHD (n = 1), or normal results (n = 2). Treatment with corticosteroids and/or intravenous immunoglobulins was attempted – resulting in rapid recovery from neurological disturbances in two cases. Patients with COVID-19 can develop neurological manifestations that share clinical, laboratory, and imaging similarities with those of chimeric antigen receptor-T cell-related encephalopathy HP. The pathophysiological underpinnings appear to involve CRS, endothelial activation, BBB dysfunction, and immune-mediated mechanisms.

    Background The novel coronavirus (2019-nCOV) outbreak has been a serious concern around the globe. Since people are in tremor MESHD tremor HP due to the massive spread of Coronavirus in the major parts of the world, it requires to predict the risk of this infectious disease MESHD. In this situation, we develop a model to measure the risk of infectious disease MESHD and predict the risk of 2019-nCOV transmission TRANS by using data of four countries - United States, Australia, Canada and China. Methods The model underlies that higher the population density, higher the risk of transmission TRANS of infectious disease MESHD from human to human. Besides, population size, case identification rate and travel TRANS of infected passengers in different regions are also incorporated in this model. Results According to the calculated risk index, our study identifies New York State in United States (US) to be the most vulnerable area affected by the novel Coronavirus. Besides, other areas (province/state/territory) such as Hubei (China, 2nd), Massachusetts (US, 3rd), District of Columbia (US, 4th), New Jersey (US, 5th), Quebec (Canada, 20th), Australian Capital Territory (Australia, 29th) are also found as the most risky areas in US, China, Australia and Canada. Conclusion The study suggests avoiding any kind of mass gathering, maintaining recommended physical distances and restricting inbound and outbound flights of highly risk prone areas for tackling 2019-nCOV transmission TRANS.
