Different Covid Variants Affect Different Parts of the Brain
« on: August 07, 2023, 07:38:16 pm »
SUMMARY - Straight from the article itself, "Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have shown in lab-based experiments that variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can affect the blood-brain barrier and damage brain cells in different ways."

Also, "The wild-type virus [the original one from Wuhan] killed all cell types except astrocytes, whereas Alpha and Beta only killed pericytes, and omicron killed endothelial cells and pericytes."

The article goes into further detail about these findings.
