NYC Doctors Report Young, Healthy COVID-19 Patients Are Having Strokes
According to Business Insider, a new report reveals the patients were at low risk for strokes.
Such strokes occur when a blood clot travels from the body into an artery in the brain.
The stroke-causing clots may be a result of coronavirus-induced swelling in blood vessels.
Dr. Thomas Oxley, MD, is a neurosurgeon at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, and published the report.
Oxley said that since first speaking out about these stroke cases, he's been flooded with emails from other coronavirus patients describing minor strokes.
