The Corona COVID-19 virus does not only attack physically, but also mentally. A number of recent studies have found that COVID-19 can cause delirium .
This condition is experienced by a number of COVID-19 patients, especially in the elderly (elderly) group. The symptoms are neurological.
What is delirium?
Delirium is a mental symptom that causes the sufferer to experience severe confusion with reduced awareness.
" Delirium is a state of confusion in which a person feels disconnected from reality, as if he is dreaming," said University of Catalonia (UOC) researcher Javier Correa.
Doctors also reminded that this condition can trigger brain disorders and even disturb the mental condition of the sufferer.
What is the relationship between delirium and COVID-19?
In a study conducted by researchers from the UOC, it was found that delirium usually occurs alongside other symptoms of COVID-19, such as loss of taste and smell, headaches, coughing, and shortness of breath.
The study, which has been published in the Journal of Clinical Immunology and Immunotherapy, also highlights the connection between the Corona COVID-19 virus and the brain as the central nervous system.
As a result, the researchers found indications that COVID-19 also affects the central nervous system and causes neurocognitive changes, such as headaches and delirium .
"The cause may be between three things. Lack of oxygen supply to the brain, inflammation of brain tissue due to cytokine storms, and the fact that the virus has the ability to flow in the blood to the brain," said Correa.

There are several characteristics or symptoms of someone experiencing delirium , including the following.
1. Difficult to focus and easily distracted
2. Daydreaming and slow to react
3. Decreased memory
4. Trouble speaking
