Study: One out of every 100 Covid-19 patients admitted to hospital will suffer a stroke
A recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Cambridge indicated that at least one out of every 100 Covid-19 patients admitted to hospital will suffer a stroke, according to what was stated in the British "Daily Mail" website.
Academics have found that strokes usually occur a few days after infection and may affect those who do not show symptoms of the Corona virus in the first place.
Those with life-threatening complications tend to be older, but they are about six years younger than patients usually seen in hospitals, and strokes from Covid-19 were nearly twice as fatal as their usual strokes.
It has also been found that other diseases, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, are a risk factor for strokes associated with the Corona virus.
The research found that strokes occurred in 14 out of every 1,000 cases - equivalent to 1.4 hospitalized patients out of every 100.
