The World Brain Day was celebrated some days ago in a particularly context, with the world facing the unprecedented pandemic of COVID-19. Although primarily not a disease of the nervous system, studies are increasingly showing the direct and indirect impact of COVID-19 on the brain. To date, there has been several reports of increasing prevalence of unexplained Strokes, peripheral neuropathies and psychiatric disorders among people tested positive of the COVID-19. Indirectly, the impact of the pandemic both socio-economically and biologically can predispose individuals to develop neuropsychiatric diseases like depression, fear, anxiety and more.
To this effect, the CEO of Brain Research Africa Initiative, Prof Alfred K. Njamnshi, will be live on the national television CRTV for a panel discussion on the program ‘Scenes de Presse”. The panel discussion will look at COVID-19 and the Brain and will be an enriching session to shed more light on the effects of the virus on the nervous system and also look at possible remedies to the situation. You are invited to tune into the national TV station, CRTV today 02 August 2020 at 9 pm for more.
