Authors: Machado-Curbelo C Abstract The main characteristics and challenging symptoms of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, are related to re-spiratory distress.

Tests were in short supply, making it difficult to know how the virus was spreading. So in April, when the Pitkin County Public Health Department announced it had obtained 1,000 COVID-19 antibody tests and that they would be offered to residents at no charge, it seemed like an exciting opportunity to evaluate the efforts underway to stop the spread of the virus. “This test will allow us to get the epidemiological data that we’ve been looking for,” Aspen Ambulance Dist...

Conclusions COVID-19 may be associated with an acute severe encephalopathy and, in this case, was considered most likely to represent an immune-mediated phenomenon. As the pandemic continues, we anticipate that the spectrum of neurologic presentation will broaden. It will be important to delineate the full clinical range of emergent COVID-19-related neurologic disease.
