A Novel Corona Virus: Impact On Cognitive Disorder
Ranjitha M | Dr. Hanumanthachar Joshi 
Abstract: A wide range of viruses are araising in different geographical areas with different virus families because of their neurotropic characters. Infection by these neurotropic viruses can directly interrupt the structural and functional complexity of the central nervous system leads impairment in cognitive disorder. Keeping in this aspect, some of the research established that the Corona virus also belongs to a neurotropic virus which was first isolated as a pathogen from the respiratory tract. SARS-COV-2 was jumped to a human at one of the wet markets present in Wuhan through open air. This was first identified in 1965 with a crown-like appearance. Seven types of Coronavirus can affect humans, but out of seven SARS emerged in southern China in 2002. In 2003, 8,000 people were affected with SARS and the small outbreak was made in 2004 with four cases but suddenly 54 cases were reported viral pneumonia which was first emerged in Wuhan, China. Noticed that SARS-affected patients experienced CNS defects during their course of quarantine illness. At present COVID-19 pandemic rocketed around the globe in 2019 by disrupting functions of another system of the body like the CV system and CNS. A better understanding of molecular, epidemiological, and pathological characteristics of this infection with a CNS system with a particular mechanism may be expected to provide tools for the development of more effective intervention strategies by reducing the release of chemomediators in the brain from the inflammatory process which would prevent the structural complex of BBB of the CNS.
