Anecdotal reports and clinical observations have recently emerged suggesting a relationship between COVID-19 disease and stroke; highlighting the possibility that infected individuals may be more susceptible to cerebrovascular events
Carmen Lahiff-Jenkins, Managing Editor of the International Journal of Stroke (IJS) spoke to Kieron South and Craig Smith from the University of Manchester, two authors of the article Preceding Infection and Risk of Stroke: An Old Concept Revived by the COVID-19 Pandemic published in IJS.
Unfortunately, at the time of recording there was some difficulty with the internet, another COVID-19 affect, and so some of the discussion with Craig Smith is a little hard to hear. Please be patient with us. It can be difficult to get good internet working from home.
