Covid-19 ger inga kvarstående skador på hjärnan, enligt en studie vid Sahlgrenska akademin i Göteborg.

– Det är väldigt positivt, särskilt för personer som drabbats av postcovid, säger professor Magnus Gisslén.

I studien följdes 100 personer som haft lindrig, måttlig eller svår covid-19. Deltagarna fick lämna blodprov vid tre tillfällen: under den akuta sjukdomen, samt tre och sex månader efter att de tillfrisknat.

Forskarna letade i blodproven efter ökad förekomst av två proteiner som visat sig vara biomarkörer för hjärnskada.
