AJR study associates coronavirus disease (COVID-19) with large vessel occlusion strokes
(American Roentgen Ray Society) COVID-19 is associated with large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke but not small vessel occlusion stroke. After stratification for race and ethnicity, the risk of LVO stroke among patients with COVID-19 was 2.4 times as high among patients without COVID-19. Physicians should lower their suspicion threshold for LVO stroke in COVID-19 patients presenting with acute neurologic symptoms. This open-access article published in ARRS' American Journal of Roentgenology is the first to describe the association.

COVID 19 – Conspiracy or Apocalypse? – Part II
By Daud Khan and Leila Yasmine KhanAMSTERDAM/ROME, Jun 8 2020 (IPS) As the COVID-19 virus spread rapidly around the globe, so did various theories about what caused the pandemic. According to the standard scientific theory, the virus originated in bats; crossed over to humans, probably via another intermediate host; and then spread rapidly across the globe. While the mainstream scientific theory sufficed for some, a large number of people saw the pandemic as the work of cold-hearted military or industrial strategists. An equally large number of people saw it as some kind of divine or natural retribution for an increasingly...

Adults at high-risk of severe coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) in Brazil
CONCLUSIONS Proportion and total number of adults at risk of severe Covid-19 are high in Brazil, with wide variation across states and adult subgroups.
